The National Records and Archives Authority has recently released the book “Musandam in the Memory of Omani History”, as part of the third volume of the historical and cultural series of the Omani governorates and cities. The book sheds light on the historical role played by the Musandam Governorate throughout its long history and its reflection on the history of the governorate in particular and on Omani history in general. It reviews and studies a set of records, books, manuscripts and novels related to the civilized history of Musandam to highlight the great role that its people played in Omani history, and their valuable efforts in the advancement and prosperity of Oman.
