Like Bibby’s two previous books, Looking for Dilmun is written for the general public. It is an account of the research carried out by a large team of Danish scholars, led by P. V. Glob and Bibby himself, in the Arab states on the Persian Gulf. The expeditions began seventeen years ago, and have been both intensive and productive: over the years, they have yielded an impressive amount of material which, with only a few gaps, now covers almost the whole cultural sequence of the Arab coast and its islands.
