The main objective of Archaeology is the recovery of tradition, and when that tradition has been recovered, to use it in writing or presenting an authentic past of a people. One of the avenues through which past traditions can be retrieved, documented and kept for posterity is through tourism. Africans share a special imperative to overhaul history, especially their history. This imperative demands from us a profound confrontation with history, a confrontation which demands that we excavate and re-excavate all available means and vigorously sift and evaluate these for the truth (or the nearest approximation to the truth) about the African selves and self. Having realizing the importance of tourism in documenting our tradition as well as its other relevance in contemporary society, this research reviews the management of Tourism and cultural resource in Anambra State. The numerous cultural resources of Anambra state are highlighted and their role in documenting our past is also examined.
