The archaeological heritage that spans from Libya to Syria ranges from the majestic Greco-Roman monuments of Leptis Magna and Cirene to the stunning rock paintings of the Acacus in Libyia, to the cities of Palmyra and Aleppo such as the Citadel and Omayyad mosques that are in need of rebuilding. Today, this heritage is threatened by the ravages of war as the world witnessed in Palmrya, Aleppo and elsewhere. The aim of the event is to raise awareness of such dangers, and to emphasize the relevance of Libyan and Syrian archaeology. Speakers will include experts on both ancient and modern Libya and Syria, UN organizations, Reconstruction organizations and Technology companies.
After an overview of the historical and archaeological background of the countries, the discussion will move forward to the status of fieldwork, research, innovative technology and reconstruction.
Some discussions will also be devoted to the indigenous cultures which flourished beyond the borders of the Greco-Roman milieu, and to the interaction between the two worlds.
