Iran's marine ancient heritage on show

For the first time, an exhibition under the subjects of "marine culture" and "the interdependence between human and sea" is being held in Iran, relying on archaeological findings that are expected to provide a new dimension on this rich and ancient heritage.

Iran (IMNA) - This is an effective step in recognizing Iranian people's ability to make benefit of the sea; Iran's Ports and Maritime organization as the responsible body in waterborne transportation has stepped forward to showcase the thousand years of this interdependence..

The exposition features more than 160 ancient maritime items from prehistoric to late-Islamic periods. The exhibition will remain open to the public until February, every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Museum of Ancient Iran.

Being situated in a strategic geographical condition, Iran enjoys the most from the water transportation. The Persian Gulf region is home to many large oil-producing countries in the world. The Caspian Sea in northern Iran, which is the world's largest inland body of water, also shares its coastlines by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan; so, it plays a significant role in promoting trade and investments among the common wealth countries.

The connection of central Asian countries with Persian Gulf and setting up trade relations among East Asian and European countries through Iran water and land boarders is highly cost effective and strategic. It is no wonder that many countries pay much attention to their transportation-communications relationships with Iran.
