Summary

Summary

Oman has played its part in ancient civilizations and still has an important role to play today. It sent copper to Mesopotamia and incense to Rome. Lying along the sea trade routes between East and West, it was the site of rich and fabled entrepots. It built great castles and fine houses. A century ago, however, it fell into decline.
