Scope note
Refers to the period from about 3000 to 1750 BCE in the area of modern Bahrain, Failaka Island, and the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia. The style of the period shows evidence for close links with both the Indus Valley and Mesopotamia, seen especially in stamp seals which exhibit motifs from both regions.
