Description: Wadi Dawkah’s frankincense trees and Shisr/Wubar’s caravan oasis remains as well as the affiliated ports of Khor Rori and Al-Balid brilliantly demonstrate the trade in frankincense that thrived for many centuries within this region. It is one of the ancient and medieval world’s most significant trading activities. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
