EAMENA Iraq Exhibition



The main aim of the exhibition Our Culture Our Future is to increase awareness about archaeological and cultural heritage sites in Iraq, so that they can be better protected in the future.

The EAMENA Project and the State Board of Antiquities and Heritage (SBAH) have worked together in this endeavour to raise awareness among members of the general public about their archaeological heritage. The first group of panels introduces the training element of the EAMENA project in the use of digital technologies and satellite imagery for the discovery of sites and heritage management. The second group outlines the types of archaeological site known in Iraq, their importance to our understanding of the development of human history and the diversity of Iraq’s rich cultural heritage. The final group identifies common threats, such as agricultural and urban expansion, which lead to many of Iraq’s historical and archaeological sites being damaged or even destroyed each year.
