Recently wide scale archaeological excavations held in Azerbaijan were discovered new archaeological monuments dating to different periods. Most of them were of scientific research character. In our co-authorship report we would like to bring to world’s scientific community notice excavation, conservation and utilization of three archaeological sites involved in Achaemenid and Antique periods. According to the only scientific aims preserving of this buildings were set aside mainly in Soviet periods. The archaeological remains, left to decay after excavations, show low resistance to the natural conditions, characterized by the frequent cycles of wetting and drying, thawing and freezing and wind erosion. Taking into consideration that in the construction of the building used mainly mud brick and lime stone, these monuments undergo of natural and anthropogenic danger. Conserving the monuments in a complex together with archaeological studying is the main responsibilities. The first samples of the utilization of archaeological sites are from urban archaeology when ruins of architectural constructions were unearthed and preserved in the formed city. Preserving these sites as a cultural heritage it is planned to include these areas in the tourist route together with other monuments in the region.
