Event Details

Sons of Sinbad - A History of Oman

The documentary series employs scientific research, experts, and reenactments to

recount events within the history of Oman that are of global relevance.

 



2. Part two: Route to India, 6th December

The second episode begins when the Portuguese arrived at the coast of Oman at the

beginning of the 16th century. The important coastal cities of Oman come under the

control of the Estado da India. Trade of spices and pepper is strictly regulated, Omani

merchants need to get and pay for a cartaz - a permission to trade.

It will take more than a century for Omanis to build up forces strong enough to resist and

fight the Portuguese. When the last bastions of the Europeans at Muscat surrender in

January 1650, the occupation finally ends.

With the help of international experts and scientific research, the episode attempts to

solve the secrets of this historical encounter: How did the Portuguese succeed in

securing the route to India? Why was it so easy for the forces from Portugal to take

possession of the Omani coast? And to what extent did the foreign occupation effect

political and economic developments in Oman?
