Archaeolgical Sites

After the horrors of war comes the need for documenting and studying the destruction of the high archaeological value, and the need for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of historic buildings.

Twenty-four of Syria’s cultural heritage sites have been destroyed during the war, according to a United Nations report. An additional 266 such sites have been affected, and 189 of those are moderately to severely damaged.

many of the six of Syria’s World Heritage Sites have been looted of antiquities, and there have been reports that sold artifacts. Many Syrian artifacts are thousands of years old.
