Project summary:

Several structures at the remains of an ancient city in one of the oldest archaeological sites in northern Syria have been severely impacted by the effects of conflict.

Damage assessment and consolidation will be carried out on these structures. Highly significant artefacts and archaeological materials at risk of being looted will be documented and stored.

Local architects and archaeologists will also be trained in assessment, monitoring and preservation techniques.

Since 2018 the site has housed more than 1600 displaced people. A number of people living on site will be trained in traditional building skills before assisting in the renovation of an on-site complex. Upon completion this will provide an invaluable community and civil society resource.
