Portuguese fort

Remains of a Portuguese era fort have been discovered in the village by a team of Australian archaeologists. The fort, originally called 'Libidia', was identified from a 16th century map. Its walls were constructed using rock recovered from a nearby tower dated back to the third millennium BCE.[4] These walls, some 60 metres in length, are joined in a square with towers on each corner and stand today at a height of up to a meter. Finds at the site of the fort include locally made pottery dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries and charcoal samples unearthed were carbon dated to 1450–1600, within the context of the Portuguese presence in the Gulf.[5]
