Bahrain artifacts showcased at ‘From Dilmun to Tylos’ exhibition in Louvre

The “From Dilmun to Tylos: An Archaeological Journey in the Kingdom of Bahrain” exhibition was unveiled at the Louvre Museum in the French capital, Paris.

The exhibition, with all its rare artifacts, tells the story of many civilizations that passed through Bahrain, since Dilmun and Tylos, and their trade, political and cultural relations with the regional and the world, President of the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA) Shaikh Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa said.

“The study and understanding of the history of the Kingdom of Bahrain, which extends for more than 4,000 thousand years, has contributed to drawing the bigger picture about the history of the region,” he said. “The archaeological findings discovered during the past decades are the basis for understanding the relations between civilizations that extended from the Indus Valley to Mesopotamia.”

Laurence des Cars, the first woman to lead the Louvre in its 228-year history, said she was delighted that the museum hosts more than 70 artefacts from Bahrain as part of the cooperation between the two institutions. Visitors to the Louvre will be able to learn about the history of the civilizations that flourished on the land of Bahrain, she said.
