The Ministry of Heritage and Tourism carries out a joint Gulf excavation at the Sanab site in the Wilayat of Bausher

Muscat: The Ministry of Heritage and Tourism (MHT) is carrying out a joint Gulf excavation that includes specialists from the authorities concerned with cultural heritage in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, at the Sanab site in the Wilayat of Bawshar in the Muscat Governorate, and will continue until January 22 of this year.

The excavation aims to document the site affected by urban sprawl and learn about its archaeological components to understand the various cultural aspects of the period of human settlement, in addition to exchanging experiences between specialists from the Gulf Cooperation Council countries.

The cemeteries of the village of “Sanab” in the Wilayat of Bausher were chosen to carry out the joint Gulf excavation because there are cemeteries on the list of archaeological sites in danger as a result of urban expansion and encroachments on these cemeteries, in addition to natural factors represented by successive floods due to climate extremes.

The excavation work plan includes photographing and documenting the site, preparing it, surveying the surrounding areas using scientific methods, examining and documenting everything suspected of being an archaeological witness, preparing and cleaning the tombs to begin the excavation process, and recording the data of the archaeological tombs according to the stages of work, in addition to recording the discovered artifacts and clarifying and preserving all the data of the archaeological finds in the scientific way.

It is noteworthy that the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism conducted many archaeological surveys and excavations in the Wilayat of Bausher, which includes a number of archaeological sites dating back to different periods of time, and carried out a rescue excavation for archaeological cemeteries affected by residential plans in the village of Sanab in the Wilayat of Bausher.
