Notes:
 Qalat al-Habudhi. Occupying the entire top of a spur in the Wadi Hadramawt. About 50m above the wadi floor. Mud brick building. Some walls on stone foundations; some founded directly on the stone of the spur. Mud brick decayed in places, but evidently not extremely old owing to the amount of straw still visible.

(12/10/07) Looking at the site in Google Earth, it appears that this structure may be a square plan w/ corner turrets.
