Top Iranian Institutions to Form an Archaeological Databank


News Category: Cultural

 23 November 2005



The first databank of historical and archeological documents in possession of the Foreign Ministry, National Library, Presidential Office and Documents and National Library Organization will soon be set up, CHN reported.

Researchers and those interested can also have access to the comprehensive bank on the Internet.

Documents Center of Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (ICHTO) had earlier compiled archeological documents and once the center becomes operational, a comprehensive databank featuring archeological documents will be available to the three important state institutions.

The documents contain interesting archeological information and cover a wide range of subjects including the excavations conducted on the order of Nasereddin Shah of Qajar, Customs House’s clashes with smugglers of antiques and dealing with illegal excavations.

Head of Documents and National Library’s Deeds Center Ziba Farzam said that Foreign Ministry, Presidential Office and Documents and National Library Organization had earlier published the archeological deeds in their possession but the center has prepared a databank by compiling comprehensive and more general information which can be accessed on ICHTO website.

Farzam further said that images of documents, some of which date back to a century ago, will go online in cooperation with Foreign Ministry, Documents and National Library Organization as well as the Presidential Office.

“The responsibility of commissioning the databank lies with the ICHTO which is in charge of the sector,“ she concluded.
