Notes on the Geography of Yemen: Shibam: Photo 1
Shibam goes back to the 4th Century B.C., but the buildings of that era are now the dust of the mound on which today's city sits. It's a compact place, measuring about 500 yards east-west and 700 north-south. The place is remarkable enough to have been put on UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage List in 1982. At that time, its population was about 7,000 people residing in 400 or 500 buildings, each of 7 or 8 stories.
