Das Werk behandelt Archaologie und Umwelt im Norden des Sultanats Oman fur den Zeitraum vom Ende der letzten Eiszeit bis zum Beginn der Bronzezeit. Es stutzt sich dabei auf die Tubinger Ausgrabungen und Gelandeforschungen zwischen 1970 und 1988, deren Ergebnisse hier abschliessend vorgelegt werden, und stellt sie in den Zusammenhang der neuen Erkenntnisse, die in der Zwischenzeit fur diesen Zeitraum in Sudost-Arabien gewonnen sind. Besonders wichtig ist der Nachweis einer vorneolithischen Besiedlung ab etwa 9000 BC. Die Neolithisierung erfolgte spatestens am Ubergang vom 6. zum 5. vorchristlichen Jahrtausend durch die Einwanderung von nomadischen Rinder-, Schaf- und Ziegenhirten, die Verbindungen zum Fruchtbaren Halbmond gehabt haben mussen. Bereits im 5. Jahrtausend v. Chr. entwickelte diese Bevolkerung eine spezifische Wirtschaftsform, die sich stark auf die Einbeziehung von marinen Ressourcen stutzte. Zusammen mit der Haustierhaltung und der Nutzung sonstiger okologischer Nischen erlaubte die Fischerei trotz der insgesamt marginalen Umweltverhaltnisse eine zunehmende Sesshaftigkeit.Breiter Raum wird der Darstellung der Funde und Befunde aus jungsteinzeitlichen und akeramisch-bronzezeitlichen Siedlungsplatzen in der Gegend um die omanische Hauptstadt Musqat gewidmet. Vergleichend werden Siedlungen des Gebiets um Quriyar behandelt. Eine ausfuhrlich kommentierte 14C-Chronologie liefert die zeitliche Einordnung der Fundstellen. Topographische und stratigraphische Angaben erlauben die Einordnung der zahlreichen Feuerstein- und sonstigen Steinartefakte sowie der Schmuck- und Gebrauchsgegenstande aus Perlmutt und anderen Muschelschalen, die sowohl tabellarisch wie in vielen Zeichnungen dokumentiert werden. Ein gesonderter Beitrag von Stephan Scholer stellt mineralogische und geochemische Untersuchungen an Schmuckobjekten des 4. Jahrtausends v. Chr. vor und beurteilt die mogliche Herkunft der Rohmaterialien.Der andere Schwerpunkt der Arbeit ist die Auswertung der anthropogenen Tierreste sowohl aus den Tubinger Grabungen wie auch aus den Grabungen eines italienischen Teams an den Fundstellen des Ra's al-Hamra bei Musqat. Tausende von Fisch- und Schildkrotenknochen geben detaillierte Hinweise auf den hochspezialisierten Nahrungserwerb einer Menschengruppe am damaligen Rand der menschlichen Okumene. Abschliessend werden die Ergebnisse in den Rahmen der Klimaentwicklung gestellt und mit denen anderer Fundstellen verglichen. Es ergibt sich das faszinierende Bild einer eigenstandigen Entwicklung in einem Teilraum der Arabischen Halbinsel, der einerseits durch das wustenhafte Hinterland isoliert war, andererseits aber durch maritime Kontakte die fruhe Kulturentwicklung des Raumes zwischen Mesopotamien und dem Industal seit der spaten Steinzeit mit bestimmt hat.

The geology of the Oman Mountains, including the Jabal Akhdar and Saih Hatat domes, is extraordinarily well-exposed and diverse, spanning a geological record of more than 800 Ma. The area is blessed with first-class outcrops and is well known in the geological community for its ophiolite. The Oman Mountains have much more to offer; including, Neoproterozoic diamictites (‘Snowball Earth’), fossil-rich Permo–Mesozoic carbonates and metamorphic rocks. The arid climate and deep incision of wadis allow for nearly complete rock exposure which can be investigated in all three dimensions. The diverse geology is also responsible for the breathtaking landscape. New roads and the nature of the friendly Omani people make fieldwork unforgettable. This Memoir provides a thorough state-of-the-art overview of the geology and tectonics of the Southeastern Oman Mountains, and is accompanied by an oversized geological map.

Stone containers have been made and used in the Middle East for over eleven millennia where they pre-dated the invention of pottery. This is the first attempt to bring together different approaches to the study of softstone vessels, particularly those carved from varieties of chlorite, and covering all periods from prehistory to the present.

The Arabian Seas Marine Region encompasses marine areas from Djibouti to Pakistan, including the northern part of Somalia, the Red Sea, the Arabian/Persian Gulf, and parts of the Arabian Sea. Human pressures on the coastal and marine environments are evident throughout the region, and have resulted in harmful environmental effects. Oil and domestic, urban and industrial pollutants in several areas of this part of the world have caused local habitat degradation, eutrophication and algal blooms. Further, coastal landfill, dredging, and sedimentation, as well as nutrient and sediment runoff from phosphate mining, agriculture and grazing, and reduction in freshwater seepage due to groundwater extraction are all contributing to the degradation of coastal environments. This book discusses aspects not covered in other books on the region, which largely focus on marine biodiversity, and examines several environmental challenges that are often ignored, but which have a significant impact on the environment. Evaluating the status quo, it also recommends conservation measures and examines the abiotic factors that play a major main role in the environmental changes. Lastly, the book addresses the biodiversity of the area, providing a general context for the conservation and management measures discussed.
