The site of Julfar is situated at the lower end of the Arabian Gulf on the north-eastern part of the Arabian peninsula in Ras al-Khaimah, the United Arab Emirates. The site is now known as an Islamic sea trade port. The main period of the site is from the middle of the 14th to the late 16th centuries. he excavated squares of dwelling site were 30*20 meters. We had found several phases in which the main buildings of different periods remained ; these phases were sub-divided into several occupational levels and layrs. It is possible to simplify the phases of the excavated area into five. Many thin layrs were included among those phases and levels, showing the existence of a continuous artificial ground. Each phase has a flattened ground on which completely new houses were built. Houses, post holes, dates incubator, ovens and pits were found in each level.
The finds were collected mainly by level and square. Finds from the interior of pits and from the debris on the floor of houses were noted with the serial numbers of constructions. Chinese blue and white and green ware, Thai green ware, Vietnamese blue and white and green ware, Iranian white ware, green ware and unglazed earthenware, Arabian unglazed earthenware were found in numbers.
These abundant sherds show the frequent sea borne trade in the Indian Ocean.
