He concluded that the enigmatic "gopher wood" of Genesis 6:14 was in fact a covering of bitumen and reeds (Phragmites), and the words was related to ''kaphar'' or pitch (Pitch (resin)) . He also made the claim that there were two Dilmuns, one located on Bahrain and the original one in the Zagros mountains. Fasold makes this claim in pp. 206-211 of ''The Ark of Noah'', years before archaeologist David Rohl did in chapter eight of his book ''Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation''. There are other similarities between their theories, though arrived at by different methodologies.

Bahrain

'''Bahrain''' (

Bahrain is the site of the ancient land of the Dilmun civilisation. Saudi Aramco World : Oman: The Lost Land Bahrain was one of the earliest areas to convert to Islam in 628 AD. Following a period of Arab rule, Bahrain was occupied by the Portuguese (Portugal) in 1521, who in turn were expelled in 1602 by Shah Abbas I (Abbas I of Persia) of the Safavid empire (Safavid dynasty). In 1783, the Bani Utbah clan captured Bahrain from Nasr Al-Madhkur and has since been ruled by the Al Khalifa royal family (House of Khalifa), with Ahmed al Fateh (Ahmed ibn Muhammad ibn Khalifa) as Bahrain's first hakim (Hakim (title)#In Arab countries). In the late 1800s, following successive treaties with the British (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland), Bahrain became a protectorate of the United Kingdom. In 1971, Bahrain declared independence (Bahrain Independence Day). Formerly a state (State of Bahrain), Bahrain was declared a Kingdom (Monarchy) in 2002. Since early 2011, the country has experienced sustained protests and unrest (Bahraini uprising (2011–present)) inspired by the regional Arab Spring, particularly by the majority Shia (Shia Islam) population.

Bahrain has the first post-oil economy in the Persian Gulf.
