Ancient Settlement found in Qatar

An exciting archaeological find has been made by Danish Archaeologists in Qatar, according to UPI.com. A Danish team excavating in Qatar has found a prehistoric settlement which may be more than 700,000 years old. A total of eight dwellings by an early species of human has been found in the desert of Qatar. The discovery could be used to sound out theories of early emigration patterns from Africa, as the archaeologists believe the humans may have left Africa via what is now the Red Sea. Keep your eyes peeled on the Gulf Times for further details!
