Looking for Dilmun

PDF-file by Geoffrey Bibby

Looking for Dilmun PDF ebook download This is the classic story of an archaeological quest for the lost land of Dilmun, which led to the identification of a hitherto unknown period of Middle Eastern prehistory. First published in 1970, it is reissued here in a new edition - introduced by one of today's leading archaeologists of the region. In Mesopotamian myth, as laboriously translated from cuneiform inscriptions in the course of the 19th-century, Dilmun is a blessed land where death is unknown - the home of Gilgamesh, the Sumerian Noah, after he is saved from the flood. In the tablets recording the business dealings of Ea-Nasir, import and export merchant of Ur between 1813 and 1790 BC, however, Dilmun is refered to as a real place, a trading station, the source of Ur's copper supplies.
