Yemen

Ancient Yemen was known as "Happy (or Fortunate) Arabia" because of its great wealth. Its riches were the result of both its location on the most important trade routes of the timeover land and sea and its profitable trade in frankincense and myrrh. Frankincense and myrrh are made from resins from trees growing only in that area. They are used to make perfumes and incense used for religious purposes.
Yemen is located in southwestern Asia, on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Oman to the northeast and Saudi Arabia to the north. The Gulf of Aden (part of the Indian Ocean) lies to the south of Yemen, and the Red Sea lies to the west. he population of Yemen is increasing rapidly; it is expected to double within twenty years.

The official language of Yemen is Arabic. The ancient Yemenis were polytheistic. They worshiped many different goddesses and Gods. The Yemeni diet is quite simple. Staples are rice, bread, vegetables, and lamb, with fish in the coastal regions.
