New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1970. — ix, 383, vii p.: ill., maps.The quest for the real Dilmun, the lost civilisation of Arabia, began when the author Geoffrey Bibby revisited Bahrain in order to explore the thousands of undated burial mounds scattered across the country. A brief season's digging was enough to establish the existence of a major civilisation dating from around 2300 BC. Thus began an undertaking to reveal the extent of Dilmun, a land which stretched beyond the confines of Bahrain, as far north as Kuwait and as far south as Saudi Arabia. In this classic tale of discovery, first published in 1969, renowned scholar Geoffrey Bibby tells his story of archaeological detective work with style and humour.
