In search of the dead – Wadi Bani Auf.

Bee-hive type tombs Auf damageBeehive type tomb archaeological site in wadi Bani Auf.

Damage carried out by road (dirt track) maintainers or the electricity contractors – either way very sad.

Bee-hive type tombs AufAbout six tombs further along the track from those above (the pile of almost black rocks centre of image)

Very early Islamic gravesProbably early Islamic – directly across the track from those above.

I find this continuous use of the same burial site quite common – time span can be 2 or 3 thousand years.
