Sistan-Baluchestan Provincial Heritage Department Fails to Use Academic Potentials


News Category: Cultural

03 December 2005 



Chairman of Sistan-Baluchestan University’s Archeology Department said that the provincial Cultural Heritage and Tourism Department is not making use of the university’s experiences.

Speaking to ISNA, Mohammad Mehrafarin added that despite the fact that the university had earlier announced its readiness to participate in provincial projects, particularly in the cultural heritage sector, the department ignores the findings of its graduates.

He further noted that although Sistan-Baluchestan is one of the richest provinces of the country in terms of antiquity, unfortunately, the department has limited its activities to a few sites.

Pointing to Burnt City (Shahr-e Sukhteh), Kuh-e Khwajeh (ancient Mount Ushidar), Dahan-e Gholaman and Bampour as the most famous sites in the province, he added that the department has not undertaken any significant activities in any of these sites.

Mehrafarin further said, “Given the large number of artifacts in the province and its potentials in the cultural heritage sector, dozens of excavation teams can be formed in the province. This will also help provide employment for the experts in the field.“
