`Anjar Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

When visiting 'Anjar , and any archaeological site for that matter, it is not ethical to remove anything from the site.
When we were at 'Anjar one of the party picked up a piece of broken pottery , a potsherd, and was holding when when one of the site guides, not our guide, was giving a short lecture. He noticed she was holding it and started shouting at her, saying it was forbidden to take anything from the site, because at some future date archaeologists might try to put things together.
The poor girl was mortified.
Tour guides should warn their clients of this beforehand.
