February 3 2005

Recently, a number of old architectural buildings dating back to the first century B.C. were discovered in Ibb Governorate. Antique stones, metal, bones and pottery pieces were found from the Sheba Kingdom.

A reliable source form the Antiquities, Museums and Scripts Bureau in Ibb told news agencies that a team of specialists have been conducting explorations for the last month, east of the historical Dhofar town.

The results showed that the location in question was deserted by its inhabitants, perhaps due to a natural disaster.
