Original manuscripts dating back 900 years will be some of the rare documents on display at the Omani Manuscripts and Documents Exhibition to be held along with workshops in three wilayats.

Organised by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and supported by Occidental of Oman, the year-long exhibition will feature different ancient manuscripts and documents. Yousef bin Ibrahim al Balushi, director general of literature and arts, Ministry of Heritage and Culture, said that the objective of the exhibition is to make people aware of how the former generations in Oman used to prepare manuscripts, documents and books on different subjects.

“The exhibition will feature manuscript dating back 531H, which is around 900 years ago,” he said addressing the media on Sunday.

“The exhibition will first open at Sayyid Faisal Museum in Muscat on March 18 followed by events in Dhofar and then in Nizwa. The exhibition will finally return to Sayyid Faisal Museum in Muscat with the concluding ceremony on March 18, 2020.”

On the sidelines of the exhibition, there will be workshops and video presentations about manuscripts while engaging the young people. The idea is to create more awareness about ancient manuscripts.
