A Yemeni-Russian team that has been working together for five years in Yemen discovered last week a building on Socotra Island that dates back the eighth century A.D.
A long time passed where Yemen was isolated and the Yemenite civilization sites were beyond the interest of archaeologists who studied the sites of oriental ancient civilization.
Not far from the turning to Dixam you can find old petroglyphs in the place called Eriosh
There are many spelling variants of the name of the Island.
Socotra suffers great losses from goats.
