Nowhere is the Sultanate of Oman's rich heritage more evident than in its abundant forts and castles, many of which are set against backdrops of great natural splendour. These iconic edifices are a justifiable source of pride to the Omani people and a strong magnet to the ever-increasing number of visitors to the Sultanate. Well-researched, beautifully written, and illustrated with stunning photography, Strongholds of Heritage: The Forts and Castles of Oman is a fascinating and definitive work on the character, role and legacy of these remarkable monuments.
