New ICCROM Publication in Arabic

As part of the publication activities of the ATHAR Programme, ICCROM announced this spring (2005) the publication in Arabic of Management Guidelines for World Cultural Heritage Sites by Bernard M. Feilden and Jukka Jokilehto. This publication is the translation of the 2nd English edition, published by ICCROM in 1998. As noted by the ECHO and ATHAR Programme partners, a serious deficiency in organising educational activities for professional archaeologists and heritage managers in the Arab speaking countries is the lack of published material in Arabic. In order to address this need, ICCROM, through its ATHAR Programme, is making available in translation some key titles. These are primarily for professionals and course participants from the Arab Region. ICCROM is grateful to the Directorate-General of Cooperation for Development, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Italy for making this publication possible through the ATHAR Programme.

Key Archaeological/Egyptological Books to be Translated

The SCA has initiated a programme, which aims to translate 100 key text books on Egyptology and archaeology from various languages into Arabic. This will make these texts more easily accessible to Arabic-speaking scholars and students. This scheme is one of the most important projects for the development of archaeology in Egypt, for it will allow students of archaeology to widen their horizons and gain greater access to various points of view and inform them of current discoveries, theories, practices and methodologies.

ECHO has already prepared and made available many international cultural heritage conventions in Arabic, other key documents will also be prepared and made available for downloading in the future.
