The papers in this volume were given at a seminar "The Archaeology of Bahrain: the British contribution" on Monday 24th July 2000 at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. The venue was the excellent Brunei Gallery, within the School, which was at the time playing host to the exhibition "Traces of Paradise" which unfolded the story of Bahrain's early history. It was the exhibition that provided the inspiration and the context for the Seminar. The British contribution to the archaeology of Bahrain goes back far more than a century and is substantial. The ten seasons of expeditions led by Dr. Killick, Dr. Moon and Dr. Crawford represent the latest, and distinguished, contribution within that tradition. The Seminar was dedicated to the memory of the archaeologist Martin Hicks who spent many years in Bahrain as Assistant Director of the London-Bahrain Archaeological Expendition and who tragically lost his life there while he was a member of the team working at Saar. The papers include: The British Contribution to the archaeology of Bahrain: the early years (Michael Rice); Excavations at al-Markh (Michael Roaf); Dilmun at the turn of the millennium: living at Saar (Robert Killick); Diraz East and A'ali East (Michael Roaf); Restructuring Bronze Age trade: Bahrain, southeast Asia and the copper question (Robert Carter); Arad fort: its restoration and foreign relations (Archie Walls). Includes many references to pioneering early English archaeologists in the region, such as Theodore J Bent, etc.
