The Origins of Doha is a UCL Qatar research project, supported by the Qatar National Research Fund and aims to explore the foundation and historic growth of Doha, its transformation to a modern city, and the lives and experiences of its people, through a combination of archaeological investigation, historical research and oral testimony. This interactive web resource presents some of the project's research, tracing of the changing physical extent and urban configuration of Al Bidda and Doha through time, using historic maps, photographs, historic building recording and the excavation of archaeological deposits. This website was made possible by NPRP grant no. 5-421-6-010 from the Qatar National Research Fund (a member of Qatar Foundation).
