People have lived on the islands of Bahrain for over six thousand years. There are traces of their lives scattered across the landscape or hidden in the sands: burial mounds, villages, palaces, temples and forts. This guidebook introduces readers to Bahrain's rich and varied past, and takes them to some of the most important sites in the Kingdom. Using the evidence from decades of archaeological work it not only details what can be seen by the visitor today, but how people once lived, worked and worshipped here. It is an indispensable guide for residents and visitors to Bahrain's unique heritage. '....written in a clear, authoritative voice and is packed with useful information and insights. As a guidebook it is an excellent model. One can only regret that ongoing political tensions in Bahrain will no doubt impact tourism there for some time to come. Yet anyone travelling to Bahrain, or any scholar interested in a short overview of the island's main sites and finds, will profit from this nicely produced volume.'
