Dry Stone village in UAE

 This house is in a village called Wamm. Located in the mountains west of Dibba, Fujairah. It is a traditional stone village in the northern mountains of Fujairah Emirate. Most of the houses are actually semi-subterranean. They used local stone and mud. Some structures were built using dry-stone masonry.
The photo was taken by archaeologist Michele Ziolkowski.
