hi kelly. i found a 1958 copy of Wendell Phillips book SHEBA'S BURIED CITY in a bag of books on the street. just finished it a few days ago. great book. i think the name might have been changed, as it's mainly about the excavation of Timna. Phillips was granted access to Marib, but the King changed his mind and the expedition had to flee for their lives.

This is a very impressive place isn't it. I loved to go around this old dam and imagine the landscape at this time.

Your pics fill me with nostalgy.


Hi Sally,

I know well this place as I went there several times as a guide. I have allowed myself to correct the location. On the other hand this is Shibam and not Sayun. I hope you enjoyed your trip in Yemen, fantastic country.

Take care Tucko
