Archaeological News from Archaeology Magazine


One of my favorite online magazines is sharing some it's latest discoveries on digs sites. Check out their recent finds.

A rare Bronze Age cist burial has been unearthed at the site of Forteviot in Scotland, which also has a Neolithic henge and a medieval cemetery. “The real treasure of this burial is not the metal objects in it, but the organic remains. This sort of material rarely survives in Scotland and it gives us an insight into what other objects were being used, not just the things that usually survive such as flint tools,” said Gordon Noble of Aberdeen University. This second article on the grave also has photographs of it. Archaeological News from Archaeology Magazine

I would like to draw attentions of Archaeologists towards the deplorable conditions of Heritage sites in Pakistan. The historic monuments are standing monuments or ruins which are found all over Pakistan. They represent various periods of our history and demonstrate the rich cultural milieu of the land. Thus, we can find historic Hindu temples in Tharparkar (Sindh) and Punjab, Sultanante period monuments in Makli Tombs, Thatta, in Multan and Ucch Sharif, and Mughal monuments in Thatta, Multan, Lahore etc. Many monuments are protected under the Federal Antiquities Act; however, there are thousands of others which still need to be provided protection.

Thanks for bringing the information on the sites up. I'm actually including the sites in Pakistan in my graduate work. I know their significance and I also know that many of are unable and unwilling to work on them in the states. For many reasons, but I am not one of those people.
