Археологическое наследие Бухары

Territory of the Bukhara region has a rich history. Preserving it, treating archaeological finds responsibly is an important part of the ESG policy of the MTO Gas Chemical Complex. This was the topic of a joint seminar of the ESG-division of the GCC MTO and the Department of Cultural Heritage of the Bukhara region.

Being one of the key industrial projects not only in the Bukhara region, but also in the whole of Uzbekistan, GCC MTO treats the historical and cultural heritage of our country with responsibility and makes every possible effort to popularize and preserve it for future generations.

The employees of the GCC MTO and the EPC-contractor, involved in the construction of the enterprise, got acquainted with what archaeological finds are, and what actions should be taken when potential archaeological artifacts are discovered.

An important part of the event was an excursus into the history of the region, lecture about the importance of archaeological finds for the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of the Republic of Uzbekistan, and a brief overview of the current corresponding legislation. Also, illustrative examples of unexpected finds discovered both on the territory of Uzbekistan and in various parts of the world were given.

Bukhara is one of the richest regions in Central Asia with regards to archaeological finds. In total, on the territory of the region there are 829 objects that are included in the National List of Cultural Heritage, with over 300 different archaeological sites, including such well-known ones as Ramitan, Ramush, Varakhsha, Vardana and Paikend, where unique examples of ancient and medieval art, including sculptures and statues, paintings, jewelry, ceramics, toys, weapons and other archaeological artifacts were found.
