Who is Peter Cornwall?

The last of the archaeologists who preceded the Danish expeditions of the 1950s onwards, was a young American scholar, Peter Bruce Cornwall. ‘On the location of Dilmun’ was published in October 1946.  This article, though it is quite short, neatly summarizes much of the work of earlier scholars, pulls it together and presents the whole as a convincing demonstration of the equation that Bahrain equals ancient Dilmun.

From: The Archaeology of the Arabian Gulf, c. 5000-323 BC by Michael Rice

A collection of these artifacts has been found in the Hearst Museum at the University of California, Berkeley.
