Notes A very scarce wall map of Bahrain published by British Admiralty. The map has three large insets of Approaches to Bahrein Harbour and Khor Kaliya. Bahrein Harbour. Khor Kaliya. Bahrain, small Arab state situated in a bay on the southwestern coast of the Persian Gulf. It is an archipelago consisting of Bahrain Island and some 30 smaller islands. Its name is from the Arabic term al-baḥrayn, meaning “two seas.” The economy has long relied on processing crude oil from neighbouring countries, and more recently the financial, commercial services, and communications sectors have grown markedly, as has tourism. Britain’s decision to withdraw all of its forces from the gulf in 1968 led Bahrain’s independence in August 1971. A treaty of friendship was signed with the United Kingdom, terminating Bahrain’s status as a British protectorate.
