Abstract: Polish archaeological and conservational research and activities have a long history, full of successes and significant discoveries. Major Polish academic centres have been conducting research and conservation works for over 100 years, protecting the heritage of the Middle East and expanding our knowledge about the history of this crucially important region. In particular, in recent decades many research projects in such countries as Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have been conducted and met with recognition of the international scientific society. The Polish research contribution and legacy of working in the Middle East cannot fail to be noticed and constitute a recognizable mark of the Polish scientific and conservation brand.
