the Great Dam of Ma'rib, dating from around the 8th century BCE. It was one of the engineering wonders of the ancient world
Recent archaeological findings suggest that simple earth dams and a canal network were constructed as far back as 2000 BCE. The Great Dam of Ma'rib certainly dates back to about the 8th century BCE and is considered the oldest known dam in the world, being counted as one of the most wonderful feats of engineering in the ancient world.The date of the first construction of the Dam at Ma’rib goes back to somewhere between 1750 and 1700 BCE. The earliest inscription on the dam is one placed there at the time of its construction or repair of parts of the dam undertaken by Yithamar bin Samal Yanf, and the period of his reign is uncertain. The following repair was in the time of Yada 'Il Bayyin who reigned in 780-750 BCE.[2] Renovations were then carried out by Dham ‘Al Dhar, who reigned in 730-720 BCE. Then Karab’il Bayyin, son of Yathimar, who reigned from 720-710 BCE. All of these repairs were slight ones, essential maintenance, such as removing dirt, or opening water courses, or stopping up gaps. The Makrib Ali Yanouf Bin Dhamar Ali (c. 790 BCE) had his name carved into parts of the dam to mark the completion and repair of the dam.

The dam was of packed earth, triangular in cross section, 580 m in length and 4 meters high. It ran between two groups of rocks on either side of the river and was linked to the rock with substantial stonework. The dam's position allowed for a spillway and sluices between the northern end of the dam and the cliffs to the west. Around 500 BCE the dam height was increased to 7 meters, the upstream slope (the water face) was reinforced with a cover of stones, and irrigation was extended to include the southern side as well as the northern side.



What's left of Marib Dam
