Hilli archaeological sites
Just 10 kilometres outside Al Ain (on the road to Dubai) are the Hili Archaeological Gardens.
Combining both a public garden and the archaeological site, this is a popular place for tourists and residents alike. The archaeological site has remnants of a Bronze Age settlement (2,500-2,000 BC), which was excavated and restored in 1995. It is the source of some of the richest finds in the area, many of which are believed to be over 4,000 years old.
There are other archaeological structures around the park, but it is chiefly a garden with plants, fountains, and a small children's play area. Hili is near Fossil Valley, an area rich in a variety of fossils dating back many thousands of years to when it was covered by sea.
