'The technical quality of this book is great. It is well written, clearly illustrated, and contains a wealth of information in a highly structured manner. The book was also published only a few years after the excavations were done. All in all this is an exemplary publication, that will be very useful for archaeologists working on the Bronze Age of southeastern Arabia.' – Dr. B.S. Düring (2023): Bibliotheca Orientalis no.
