Abstract

This paper discusses long-term settlement history and patterns in the southern Oman Peninsula, namely the Dhofar region, by setting out a tentative quantified analysis of the available archaeological evidence from the literature about this part of the peninsula. The analysis will demonstrate that the data set used is undeniably problematic. There is an absence of such type of quantified analysis in this part of the peninsula. Since 2008, one of the authors has started such analysis for the archaeological evidence about the northern Oman Peninsula. This paper is a continuation of such analysis. It will demonstrate some differences in settlement trends between the northern and southern parts of the
Oman Peninsula. Moreover, the analysis will give a broadly correct indication of general long-term trends. Despite all possible limitations, this study has contributed to our understanding of the region’s archaeology. Quantification of the published archaeological evidence from the whole southern Oman peninsula offers some preliminary developments and patterns can lead to developing future hypotheses and interpretations relating to changing levels of activity in the southern Oman Peninsula.
