DescriptionEdit

Hili is the largest Bronze Age site in the UAE and dates from the 3rd millennium BCE. Other remains include settlements, tombs, and a falaj dating from the Iron Age. Some of the site is located outside the park in a protected area. Finds from the site can be seen in the Al Ain National Museum in central Al Ain. The Hili Grand Tomb is a tower measuring 12 m (39 ft) in diameter that has been reconstructed.[2] The tombs belong to the Umm al-Nar culture.
