Cultural heritage is indubitably one of the most indispensably necessary pillars of cultures and traditions in the Algerian society in its entirety. Owing predominantly to its colossal moral and material value, the legislative authority has been over the years fully committed to putting in place all the laws that will guarantee its sustainable maintenance and ongoing conservation. Framed more lucidly, the Algerian legislator has allocated an arsenal of legal texts to classify and manage all existing categories as well sub-categories of archaeological properties. It has, likewise, devoted an independent financial budget to repair and restore what was been lost or had had its historical value downgraded. To accomplish this ensuring the highest degrees of perfection, it has resorted to the assistance of experts, inspectors as well as regular members of the civil community. Additionally, the legislator imposed stern penalties for attacks on landmark antiquities, such as theft, conversion or smuggling.
