In Conversation

Hatem Arrok

29 April 2014 , QM Gallery, Al Riwaq

Hatem is an archaeologist and works on urban and historical excavations in and around Doha. Along with his colleagues in QM’s department of Archaeology, his projects involve excavating in and around the city, in particular, saving Old Doha.

In our interview, Hatem talked about his project sites and findings in the heart of Doha, and told us why Qatar’s archaeological heritage is so important.

"I've loved archaeology since childhood, and just like any other child, I dreamt of discovering new things"
"Not only is Qatar excavating the past, it's also seeking to bring archaeology research centers to prepare a Qatari team for future excavations, because it's their home"
