The 2017-2020 archaeological excavation campaigns of the Quelba/Khor Kalba fortress remains (Sharjah Emirate, UAE), where the Portuguese stayed around twenty years beginning in 1624 and which were documented in texts and drawings, led to the discovery of wall sectors and a tower foundation, a well, part of residential floors (as evidenced by numerous post-holes), domestic ovens and fireplaces, as well as numerous artefact fragments. Among these, we have almost two hundred Chinese porcelain sherds, mostly from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, namely belonging to plates, small pots, and little bowls and cups used to drink tea or coffee.
