|Location||Al Ain, Eastern Region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the UAE|
|Founded||c. 1,100-500 BCE|
Located three kilometres west of Hili Archaeological Park, the rectangular mound at Rumailah is thought to have been home to populations dating back to the late Umm Al-Nar period, yielding buildings and artefacts from a more recent, major Iron Age II settlement dated from around 1,100-500 BCE.
Finds at Rumailah include distinctive pottery adorned with snake patterns, similar to finds at Qusais, Masafi and the major Iron and Bronze Ages; metallurgical production centre at Saruq Al Hadid, as well as chlorite vessels decorated with turtles alternating with trees, similar to finds from Qidfa' in Fujairah, Qusais in Dubai and Al-Hajar in Bahrain. A number of Iron Age swords and axe-heads, as well as distinctive seal moulds, were also recovered from the site. A number of bronze arrowheads were also found at the site. The Iron Age buildings found at Rumailah are typical of those found in the region, at Iron Age I and II sites such as Al Thuqeibah and Muweilah, with a number of row dwellings, although lacking the perimeter walls found at Thuqeibah. A columned hall at Rumailah provides a further link to Muwailah, while a number of pyramidal seals found at Rumailah find an echo with similar objects discovered at Bidaa bint Saud.
