Technology Essential in Archaeological Studies


News Category: Cultural

 10 November 2005



The general outlook about archaeology should undergo a drastic change to incorporate modern know-how into the field and bring it out of the current isolation in Iran, observed the head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei.

He said in his statement to the International Conference on Archaeology that modern technology should be applied to upgrade the sector, reported CHN.

Mashaei said that though the cultural heritage and tourism sector should employ domestic experts and researchers, modern technology applied in archaeology demands international interaction and cooperation.

“Archeological findings not just belongs to a single nation but to the entire world. The cultural and historical significance of historical monuments is also important for the international community,“ the official pointed out.

He said that life of human beings is a common reality and archaeology indicates the process of social evolution and the ups and downs of human life.

“Archeology helps us form judgments about life in the past and correct our mistakes taking lessons from the past.“

He said that archaeological studies are essential for every nation, particularly for Iran which has massive amount of cultural sites.

He called for making use of the experience of other nations in conducting archaeological excavations in Iran.
