The main aim of the exhibition Our Culture Our Future is to increase awareness about archaeological and cultural heritage sites in Lebanon, so that they can be better protected in the future.
The EAMENA Project and Directorate General of Antiquities (DGA) 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 Lebanon, their importance to our understanding of the development of human history and the diversity of Lebanon’s rich cultural heritage. The final group identifies common threats, such as agricultural and urban expansion, which lead to many of Lebanon’s historical and archaeological sites being damaged or even destroyed each year.Return to main exhibition page
