The excavations at Saar produced the largest single corpus of Bronze Age seals and sealings found in Bahrain, the centre of the Dilmun civilization (2000 BC). This material forms a unique record of the art of the period, and provides valuable information about the commercial activities of the inhabitants of Saar. An introductory text describes the study of seals and sealings. The accompanying catalogue contains details of over two hundred seals and sealings, and is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs.
