In the 1970s, World Health Organization and several international groups developed a policy for preserving other cultural health practices.  Unani or Tibbs medicine is Greco-Arabic in nature, and is practiced by just 3 or 4 countries.  It is Hippocratic in nature, with touches of alchemy and homeopathic philosophy.   The primary promoter of this tradition (pictured) passed about 10 years ago. Sects in India and in the U.S (if any exist) are perhaps the only groups that will keep it alive.

Sabaean, an extinct Semitic language once spoken in Saba, the biblical Sheba, in southern Arabia. The Sabaean or Sabaic alphabet is one of the south Arabian alphabets. The oldest known inscriptions in this alphabet date from about 500 BC. Its origins are not known, though one theory is that it developed from the Byblos alphabet. The Sabaean alphabet is thought to have evolved into the Ethiopic script.

Sweden's most splendid proto-prehistoric object is a 1500 year-old gold collar from Ålleberg which was made so skillfully that today’s goldsmiths do not know how it was made. Made of seven tubular rings, each divided into halves and joined together by a hinge. The spaces between the rings are filled with small miniature figures, humans and animals, almost invisible to the eye. Some have suggested that together they tell a story. Only 9 inches in diameter, some question how it was worn.
