Methodical investigation and research of archaeological sites have led us to our understanding of human history. Protection, preservation and management of archaeological sites need a critical understanding of the processes and methodologies followed by archaeologists, researchers and policymakers.

The panel discussion aims to bring forth the academic and legislative requirements of protecting archaeological sites, the systematic study of the material remains of the past and deliberate actions designed to ensure their conservation as per the rules and regulations while understanding the challenges and limitations of the archaeological sites which often differs from the built heritage.
