The expansion of necessary developments have a
direct impact on cultural recourses. Iran is an ideologically driven
country currently undergoing development. The state now called Iran is
currently covering a land enriched with variety of historical and
archeological values. Any kind of development projects should primarily
take this into an account to avoid destruction and disturbance of
these nonrenewable sites. Yet there are different kinds of motivations
for the authorities, when it comes to dealing with cultural heritage
site. Lets see under what conditions cultural heritage sites are
carefully preserved and why in some cases they are being neglected and
almost deliberately destroyed.
Target Audience: Cultural heritage managers, conservators and archaeologists.
