G.R.D. King – Abu Dhabi Islands Archaeological Survey – 1992


The full report of the first detailed archaeological survey of Abu Dhabi’s islands, published in 1992.

On the instructions of Sheikh Zayed, a survey was commissioned under the newly-formed Abu Dhabi Islands Archaeological Survey (ADIAS) to research the Sir Bani Yas, Dalma and Marawah offshore islands.
