‘The Land of Frankincense’, my new book, explores key locations associated with Frankincense in Dhofar, including the four UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Locations such as Wadi Andhur, that few have heard of let alone visited, have their own chapter in this 182page Paperback book (& eBook); while the better-known sites, including Al Balid, are covered in more depth.
This is a book for the person who, like myself, is not an academic but is interested in this famed tree and its resin.
The History and Biology of the tree, its resin and the trade that built the wealth of ancient Arabia are covered.
