This chapter discusses key findings of the first section of this volume about the relevance of sites of burial in Hadrami diaspora. It comments on a narrative of a one-way flow of value arriving with the sayyid descendants of the Prophet in Tarim in the twelfth century, and then outward from. It suggests that the graves of Tarim provided an absolute vertical axis to ground and fix all that was of value, whether mobile or sedentary, foreign or local.

Keywords:   sites of burial, Hadrami diaspora, Tarim, graves, sayyid
