Oman hopes to get its archaeological sites in the eastern region to be included in the World Heritage List, according to a top official with the Ministry of National Heritage and Culture.
"Work is being carried out on these sites for five years and now we feel that it is an important archaeological place and could be included in the World heritage List," Biubwa bint Ali Al Sabry, director of Archaeology Department at the ministry told Gulf News yesterday.
The Frankincense Route sites in Dhofar-Wadi Dawkah, Wubar, Khor Rori and the city of Al Baleed are already registered with Unesco's World Heritage List since 2000 and the ministry hopes that Ras Al Jinz, Ras Al Hadd and Ras Al Khabbah would also soon find a place in this list.
