Marib Dam is regarded as one of the greatest feats of engineering of the pre-industrial age. You have to have canals, gates, sluices, and spillways, and the whole thing has to be waterproof, or else everybody living on the wrong side of it might wake up drowned one morning.

The Sabaens managed all this before the existence of concrete, and their dam stood for over 1,000 years. In comparison, modern dams built with our advanced technology last for around 50 years, or 100 if they’re really something.

The dam finally burst around A.D. 600, bringing down much of the agriculture system and converting the area into the sandy desert it is today.
