The archaeological findings, which are unearthed in the fort, reveal much about the history of Bahrain. The area is thought to have been occupied for about 5000 years and contains a valuable insight into the Copper and Bronze Ages of Bahrain. The first Bahrain Fort was built around three thousand years ago, on the northeastern peak of Bahrain Island. The present fort dates from the sixth century AD. The capital of the Dilmun civilization, Dilmun was, according to the Epic of Gilgamesh, the “land of immortality”, the ancestral place of Sumerians and a meeting point of gods.

Qal`at al-Bahrain is a typical tell – an artificial mound created by many successive layers of human occupation. The strata spreads over a 180.000 sq ft (16.723 m2) area, which encompasses the tell. Metal artifacts found in the tel were limited to copper pieces, fishing tools and a socketed spearhead; a workshop of 525 m (1.722 ft) size was also identified where copper casting two piece moulds and wax moulds were found. Small and large crucibles used for melting of metal were recovered in substantial quantities indicative of large scale manufacture by professional artisans. Dilmun stamp seals were also recovered from the excavations. Pots and vessels were also recovered. Pots were used for cooking, while the large vessels for food import from Oman and Mesopotamia.
