Department of Archaeology and Museums (DOAM) would survey about 100 archaeological sites in the federal capital to find out a potential site for documentation and preservation.
The department has submitted the Master Plan for `Survey, Documentation and Protection of Archaeological Sites and Monuments’ in ICT amounting Rs. 14.846 million to the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage.
Director General, DOAM, Dr. Muhammad Arif said the work on the project would be started soon after the approval of the proposal.
He said recently the department completed the excavation work on a new Buddhist archaeological site `Ban Faqiran’ atop Margalla Hills finding some antiquities.
The department would now start the preservation of the site which would enable visitors to get a glimpse of the newly discovered historical place.
