Ancient Bahrain: The Power of Trade

Ancient Bahrain: The Power of Trade

Sharjah Archaeology Museum released this title in October 2014 accompanying the exhibition “Ancient Bahrain: The Power of Trade” which displayed the magnificent artifacts borrowed from Bahrain National Museum’s permanent collection that dates to the period from Second Millennium B.C. to the Third Century A.D. The book contains about 150 artefacts of the exhibition’s collection including, stone stamps, pottery, glassware, ivory, and Alabaster kitchen pieces, in addition to gold-work and stone, a testimony to the richness of trade activity in the region in that period, and Bahrain’s important role as a trade and political center of the Dilmun civilization in 2050 B.C.
