Artifacts Added to the Memory of the World Register

Post by KoKo » Tue Oct 13, 2015 6:04 pm

Burma is proud to have had two more artifacts included in the UN-established Memory of the World Register for 2015, Kyaw Oo Lwin, director general of the Ministry of Culture’s archeology department, told The Irrawaddy on Monday.

The Myazedi Inscription and the Golden Parchment of King Alaungpaya were added to the register at the 12th meeting of the International Advisory Committee of the Memory of the World Register Program, which took place Oct. 4-6 in Abu Dhabi.

The program was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) in 1992.
