As you know, we have recently brought comments back to our site. We are excited about expanding the conversation. But, without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.

So here is our comments policy. By posting on our website, you agree to the following:

You may comment without registering. You can log-in via Disqus, OpenID, Twitter, Facebook—or not at all. It’s up to you.

You may post anonymously. We don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. We may change this rule if it is abused.

You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, we would rather receive your comments on our website than via email. It is a better use of our time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.

You may disagree with us. We welcome debate. However, we ask that if you disagree with us—or anyone else, for that matter—do so in a way that is respectful. In our opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public square to tolerate it here.

We reserve the right to delete your comments. This is our website. We don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. If you’re a U.S. citizen or from elsewhere, The First Amendment of USA gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not ours.

Specifically, we will delete your comments if you post something that is, in our sole opinion, (a) snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate our sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.

You retain ownership of your comments. We do not own them and we expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on our website, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve us from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

You grant us a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant us the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, us goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. We believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.

Welcome to our website!

Dear visitors!

Greetings.

Welcome to the website of Antiquities department, Government of Sindh. Archaeology and antiquities; where we can look our past, our heritage and status of our greatest civilization.

My own heart beats with the archeology and tourism of Sindh. In Antiquities, I initiated the task to promote the Archeological and Cultural Heritage within and outside the country by revitalizing the Directorate of Antiquities, which was in dormant since its establishment. For the first time a full time Director General assumed the charge of this important organ, and the directorate showed their performance in holding of three-days International Conference on Mohen jo Daro, conservation at Makli as per UNESCO guidelines. The Umerkot fort which was neglected since long and was in complete ruins has been brought back into its past grandeur after the restoration of its majestic walls. The Department in collaboration with the French Archeological Mission carried out Archeological excavations at Chahun jo Daro, a pre-historic site in Sakrand. The excavation at Lakhian jo Daro is in progress in collaboration with the Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur, whereas joint archeological venture at Bhanbhore site has been formalized with the Italian archeological mission. Restoration work at Kotdiji fort and at Ranikot fort are set to be started in coming days.

Beside all above concrete tasks, it was very much necessary to bring all information regarding activities and comprehensive data of our archaeological sites to all of you, no matter where you live, on which time you can spare for us; our responsive website will say you welcome and present you all information that you need. I am hoping that you will enjoy our website and wonder to see our glorious hidtory.

  • What is an Archaeological Site?

    An archaeological site is a location where there is evidence of past human activity. We can apply archaeological analysis to these sites in order to learn about past events and our own heritage. Archaeological sites can include things such as ancient stone carvings, remains of ancient houses and campsites, shell middens and even culturally modified trees. Archaeological sites represent only one component of a range of heritage resources found throughout the province, including things like historic buildings, shipwrecks, heritage trails, etc.
  • Why should we protect archaeological sites?

    Archaeological sites represent our only link to over 98 percent of the province’s human history. They are a precious non-renewable resource. Archaeological sites and their artifacts are important provincial resources similar to mineral deposits, arable land, forests, fish and wildlife.
