Archaeologists have revealed the discovery of what they describe as one of the most remarkable and rare finds in the Gulf region - a 7,500-year-old, well-preserved three-room house.

The house was excavated on Marawah Island, just off the coast of Abu Dhabi, at what was once one of the region's largest Stone Age settlements.

"These important discoveries signify Abu Dhabi's advanced construction methods from the Neolithic [era] and the influential role it had in early long-distance maritime trade," said ­Mohamed Al Mubarak, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority.
