Abstract: The location of the legendary city of Ubar, a desert caravansary which supported the ancient and lucrative frankincense trade, has likely been found at the edge of the Arabian Peninsula's Empty Quarter in modern day Oman. The archaeological site was located by an unusual combination of historical research, and application of space technology, in support of traditional archaeology.
