Pakistan – Archaeological sites preservation urged

The importance of archaeology in the history and culture of Pakistan besides lingering danger of its defacing were highlighted in a conference organised by the American Institute of Pakistan Studies in collaboration with Department of Archaeology and Museums.

The conference focused on preservation and conservation of archaeological sites and monuments that exist in Pakistan. The archaeologists presented their papers about the history of archaeology in Pakistan, cultural heritage of Sindh and Balochistan, challenges of preserving and presenting the past in the present, heritage education at universities, archaeology and cultural heritage training and recent surveys of historic monuments.

“Archaeology is the study of past human societies, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the material and environmental data including artefacts, architecture, bio-facts and cultural landscapes, found during excavations,” said Director General Department of Archaeology and Museums Dr Fazal Dad Kakar.

Archaeological sites preservation urged.
