Archaeology Laws and Cultural Heritage Legislation

This resource page is a collection of archaeology laws in Southeast Asia and legislation related to cultural heritage.

Most countries in the region has some sort of law regulating the practice of archaeology, excavations and the export of artefacts, although the enforcement and oversight vary. This page draws from a number of useful databases and guides to legislation on the internet. Please use with caution and appopriate judgement: as far as possible, I’ve tried to link to the actual text from the official law repository of the country, but please note that some documents are not in English, and no official English translation may be available. Documents are listed by country and year.
