This chapter investigates the broader nationalist and political contexts within which names other than Persian Gulf have emerged in the past fifty years and explores the stances archaeologists working in the region have taken in response to these developments. It analyzes the relations between Iran and Arabs in the context of the Persian Gulf and the development of Arab nationalism in the region. This chapter considers the role the archaeological community, especially Western archaeologists, has assumed amid volatile Arab-Iranian relations.

Keywords:   Persian Gulf, archaeologists, Iran, Arab nationalism, archaeological community, Arab-Iranian relations
