Shwedagon

In compiling the papers from the Pyu era to the present day to know the true and continuous Myanmar’s history, it has completed four eras, according to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture.

The ministry, along with outside scholars, has been compiling historical papers based on literature evidence, field research reports, excavations and stone inscriptions.

“We are still writing for the Pyu Age. We have finished for the Bagan, Sagaing, Inwa, Nyaungyang ages and part of the Konbaung era,” said Dr. Tun Tun Oo, director of the ministry.

The objectives are to spread the true knowledge of Myanmar’s history, to develop the spirit of union and patriotism and to enable the preservation of the culture and historic events after regaining the knowledge of them.

In addition, the genes of the Pyu people, who have passed throughout Myanmar’s history from stone age, bronze age, iron age to Pyu era, will be studied and compared with those of today’s ethnic people.
