UAE's History and Civilization
Transcript of UAE's History and Civilization
The first people to inhabit the area of what is now the UAE used the bow and arrow, as well as the knife. Their weapons were made of flint or chert, often honey-coloured, red, or almost purple.
Ancient industries & crafts
Not long ago, the UAE was a land of desert inhabited by proud and resourceful nomadic Bedouin tribes, fishing villages and date farms. Abu Dhabi consisted of several hundred palm huts (barasti) huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's Fort. Situated along the creek, Dubai was a trading hub, providing a safe haven before the Straits of Hormuz and beyond. Life today in the Emirates bears little resemblance to that of 40 years ago.
Today, the UAE is a major international tourist and business center as well as one of the most modern, stable and safe countries in the world. It has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world at nearly $25,000 USD. The UAE has approximately 10% of the world's total known oil reserves, 90% in Abu Dhabi and about 10% in Dubai. While the Abu Dhabi reserves are expected to last another 100 years, at present rates of production Dubai's reserves will last only another ten years. Fortunately, the UAE is no longer solely reliant on oil and gas revenues. Today, the oil sector contributes 30% of the country's GDP. Thanks to the foresight of the UAE leaders, trade, tourism, real estate and construction are large contributors, most notably in Dubai. pearl diving, ship building and fishing were declined because of the discovery of oil and the risks the workers were exposed to.

ANCIENT INDUSTRIES & CRAFTS
Divers used primitive tools such as a rope and nose clip
the pearl dealer arranged for the sale of the pearls and the mother-of- pearl
Farmers lived near the oasis (where water sources and irrigation allowed for farming of dates and vegetables). One can still see the luxuriant date farms in Al Ain and irrigated terraced gardens in the mountain wadis (valleys).
