The project aims at creating a unified national register of artifacts in all emirates of the UAE. This register helps everyone to know all the details about such artifacts and find proper ways to preserve them and restore them as part of the cultural heritage of the state. The implementation of this project is part of the objectives that the Ministry seeks to achieve in order to preserve archaeological sites and introduce them to internal and external audiences. The project is supervised by a local specialized team, which works closely with local authorities to implement modern scientific methods.
