The period from Alexander the Great to the coming of Islam, including full discussion of the history of Christianity in the area, comprises this second volume, in which Potts combines the literary evidence from Greek, Roman, Syrian and Arab sources with an overview of archaeology.
Alexander, the Seleucids, and the Arabian Gulf; North-Eastern Arabia during the Hellenistic Period; Bahrian from the Hellenistic Era to the Sasanian Period; the Hellenistic Period on Failaka; North-Eastern Arabia during the Parthian and Sasanian Periods; South-Eastern Arabia from the Hellenistic Era to the Sasanian period.
The Arabian Gulf has, since the early 1970's, been one of the most promising areas of research in ancient near-eastern archaeology. Until now, however, there has been no attempt to synthesize the archaeology and history of this region from the beginnings of human settlement to the rise of Islam. Drawing on a wide array of archaeological, epigraphic, and literary sources, Dr. Potts presents here for the first time a comprehensive study of the area in two volumes. The period from Alexander the Great to the coming of Islam, including a full discussion of Christianity in the area, comprises the second volume. The first volume covers the Pleistocene to the Achaemenian period. Both volumes are written in a clear and readable manner and are fully illustrated with figures and plates.
