Saruq Al Hadid: Dubai's Iron Age
On the edge of the Empty Quarter, hidden and forgotten for thousands of years, lie the remains of an ancient trading post – a city that traded with the ancient kingdoms of Egypt, Mesopotamia and India, with foundries producing exquisitely designed ornaments and weaponry. A thriving oasis in the desert. A meeting place of cultures and ideas. This documentary unveils the story of how the historical site was discovered by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and how the ring became the origin of the Expo 2020 Dubai logo.
