Vers une archéologie préventive au Yémen

Abstract : Preventive archaeology, rescue archaeological operations and actions for heritage protection have been increased in Yemen these last decades. Local authorities have quickly realized the danger of modern town and country planning on the preservation of the scientific knowledge of the past. Otherwise, lootings done against the current law on the protection of antiquities are increasing in parallel with the growing interest of art dealers.
This paper try to place the emergency scientific actions within the more traditional archaeological research, in comparison with the situation observed in France. The frame of the Yemeni law is also analysed in order to determine its value and its application. Recent operations are then presented, in the perspective of a more organised development of the preventive archaeological researches in Yemen.
