The archaeological site of HD-5 is located at Ras Al-Hadd (Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate, Sultanate of Oman), on a rocky hill facing the sea, 1.6 kilometer north of the large Hafit site of HD-6. In four campaigns, from 2010 to 2015, an 11 x 10 m area was explored using a micro-stratigraphic approach for the excavation of the loose sandy layers that formed the deposit.

Abstract

The archaeological site of HD-5 is located at Ras Al-Hadd (Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate, Sultanate of Oman), on a rocky hill facing the sea, 1.6 kilometer north of the large Hafit site of HD-6. In four campaigns, from 2010 to 2015, an 11 x 10 m area was explored using a micro-stratigraphic approach for the excavation of the loose sandy layers that formed the deposit. The excavation revealed two main occupation phases divided by a frequentation gap, a late Neolithic one in the 4th millennium BC and the other at the end of the 3rd millennium BC. The Neolithic occupation included a series of human depositions along the northern side of the explored area.
