A Nation without Heritage

is a Nation without History

Whoever recalls their past ; as that saying goes and makes it a clear cut comment that lessens the tangible importance of  heritage to prove its deeply rooted past as a deep warehouse full of these palpable values and the deep roots they grew up on its lands because whatever development and civilization in all walks of life man reaches, they will be still tied to that tree that is if it is uprooted , it consequently dies.

The beginnings of Arch. through Ages

First, collecting and keeping the old artifacts used for religious and funerary purposes as those in pagan tombs and temples.
- Second, caring for old artifacts and the early travelers and explorers’ love of knowledge and their curiosity in the countries and societies they wandered and their records of all strange things they had seen. For example, the Greek scientist Bouzayans who toured the Greek cities in the second century A.D.
- Third, tomb robbers who dug most of the ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamia tombs long time ago and till the modern times and extracted their treasures and other valuable artifacts.
- Fourth, in the fifth Hijiri century, there appeared a place in the Muslim world for the first time to be called A Museum, when the Fatimid Khalif in Cairo, Al Monteser Bellah collected what he had found from artifacts and treasures in a special museum. However the purpose for that museum was not assigned to study or recreation but it was for pride and showing off.
- Fifth, in the ninth Hijri century, it was a common habit in Italy among the rich people to possess the archaeological artifacts to ornament the halls of their palaces for showing them off and thus this phenomenon spread to most European countries.
- Sixth, the search and the archaeological dig for the artifacts and the treasures without caring for them as the French scientists had done in Egypt during their campaign and thus these treasures and artifacts lost their historical value. After that a lot of digs were done in old districts in all over the world under correct scientific methods for study and analysis of the found artifacts and treasures.
- Seventh, in the thirteenth Hijiri century, the Europeans began to dig old districts for the purpose of study and analysis. These digs were run by professional scientists, governmental authorities, universities and specialized centers. These efforts were very fruitful as they brought about the increase in the numbers of archaeologists, digs, travels and specialized magazines and brochures nowadays. Thus, archaeology has grown day after day because of the up-to-date scientific technologies that back its mission.
