Door detail – Birkat al Mouz.
Adventure but not stupidity !
Another adventure beckons.
Ruins – Birkat Al Mouz.
Enough of the sarcasm about the new WordPress reader: back to what passes as normal on this blog.
Ruins hidden behind some of the modern houses in the main thoroughfare of Birkat Al Mouz.
Ruins that most people miss when they visit this town: there was not two as I have seen mentioned, but three occupied areas until modernity arrived.
In his book “Across the Green Mountains of Oman” Colonel S B Miles says that in 1876 the population was about 3000 & the settlement is divided into three distinct hujrahs (sic) sections, Belonging to Sezzid Hamad and the other two to the El Amair & Beni Riyam tribes respectively.
