The precious frankincense, spices, gold and other valuable goods were transported over 3,000 kilometers across the Arabian Peninsula - a logistical challenge, which would not have been possible without caravans. In the first century BC the trade gradually shifted to the sea, because customs duties and charges were lower, and so higher profits could be achieved. This was the end of the Incense Road as a trade route. Joachim Willeitner takes the reader with him on a trip to the great, but also to the less known stations on the long caravan route. A book like a journey into 1001 nights.
