History of Oman Prehistory and ancient history[ edit ] At Aybut Al Auwalin the Dhofar Governorate of Oman, a site was discovered in containing more than surface scatters of stone tools, belonging to a regionally specific African lithic industry —the late Nubian Complex—known previously only from the northeast and Horn of Africa.
Two optically stimulated luminescence age estimates place the Arabian Nubian Complex atyears old. This supports the proposition that early human populations moved from Africa into Arabia during the Late Pleistocene.
Sites such as Baat show professional wheel-turned pottery, excellent hand-made stone vessels, a metals industry, and monumental architecture. Thereafter until the coming of the Ibadhidya little or nothing of is known.

Rebellious tribes eventually drove out the Portuguese, but were themselves pushed out about a century later, inby the leader of an Omani tribe, who began the current line of ruling sultans. Except for a brief Persian invasion in the late s, Oman has been self-governing ever since.
A major obstacle to his progress was Fort Jesushousing the garrison of a Portuguese settlement at Mombasa.
