Muweilah is an archaeological site in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, in the suburb of Al Jurainah near Sharjah University City. A large, fortified settlement thought to have been occupied during the Iron Age II period, the site has been explored by archaeologists since an Australian expedition started work there in 1994 after the discovery of pottery shards by a local resident, it has yielded the oldest known example of writing found to date in the UAE, a pottery shard with an inscription, thought to be Sabean, with the letters'bml'. It is considered one of the significant Iron Age sites in the UAE. Excavations have shown; the first evidence of writing in the UAE was found in this site, on a piece pottery with the three letters of the South Arabic. Muweilah is one of the sites on the UAE's preliminary list to be nominated in the future to the World Heritage List. Carbon dating artefacts found at Muweilah puts the settlement's original date of establishment at between 850 and 800 BC and it enjoyed a brief heyday before being destroyed in a fire around 600BC.

Constructed in the main from interlocked mud bricks and mud/stone brick walls, the walled settlement itself surrounds a large walled enclosure with seven buildings, thought to have provided living quarters as well as an administrative centre. This central building contained at least twenty columns and has been a rich trove for archaeologists, with extensive finds of painted and spouted vessels, iron weapons and hundreds of bronze pieces. Enabled by the domestication of the camel in the region, thought to have taken place around 1,000 BC, Muweilah's trade included the manufacture of copper goods, with "extensive casting spillage from the manufacture of copper items found throughout the site". A terracotta camel found during early digs stands as the most complete find of its kind and facsimiles of the piece decorate the gateway to the Sharjah Archaeological Museum. Other finds from the site include items imported from Iran and Yemen and indicate extensive trading links. Muweilah is unique in its early and extensive adoption of iron goods, thought to have been imported from Iran.

Hundreds of grinding stones indicate the consumption of both wheat. Although now some 15 km inland today, it is thought that in its heyday, Muweilah would have been located on a khor or creek. List of Ancient Settlements in the UAE
