Geochemical analysis on the bitumen lining of a vessel excavated from Tumulus B-5 by Peter B. Cornwall

Abstract
GC-MS analysis was conducted on a bitumen sample coming from the lining of a vessel excavated from tumulus B-5 (Bahrain) in order to obtain the goelogical origin of the sample. This vessel dates to the Early Dilmun period and belongs to a set of typical grave-goods of that time and place. However, degradation of teh bitumen caused the molecular pattern to alter making it impossible to positively match this sample with any reference. Presumably, the bitumen was imported from Iraq.
