Synopses & Reviews
Dilmun was a land which stretched beyond the confines of Bahrain, as far north as Kuwait, and as far south as Saudi Arabia. The quest for the real Dilmun began when the author revisited Bahrain in order to explore the thousands of undated burial mounds scattered across the country. A seasons digging established the existence of a major civilisation dating from around 2300 BC. First published in 1969 this fascinating book of discovery tells the story of archaeological detective work with style and humour. It is re-issued here for a new generation of readers and introduced by Carl Phillips, one of the leading archaeologists of the region.
