Fine Arts Dept to publish archaeology glossary

The Fine Arts Department will publish the country’s first archaeology glossary this March, a senior official said Monday.

The glossary will be available to universities, government agencies and the public in book and compact-disc forms.

The publication is a five-year joint effort by department archaeologists, experts and academics. It marks His Majesty the King’s 80th birthday later this year, said department deputy director-general Khemachat Thepchai.

The illustrated glossary contains several thousand definitions of archaeological words and terms. It covers prehistoric archaeology, the history of art, iconology and architectural technology, Khemachat said.
