He said: We are at a crossroads about whether to hold the conference or not in light of the situation that has changed a lot since the previous event five years ago, as we set another date before the pandemic and it could not be held.

However, he considered it important to resume the organization of the conference, otherwise space would be lost, most importantly on a variety of topics of archaeology, religion and cultural anthropology, to name a few.
