New Exhibition - Syria: Ancient History – Modern Conflict

Ian Potter Museum of Art, 28 March to 27 August 2017

Syria: Ancient History – Modern Conflict explores three decades of fieldwork conducted by The University of Melbourne in Syria within the context of the current conflict and destruction. The exhibition more broadly considers how objects that have been lost, stolen or destroyed nevertheless remain part of collections and are the subject of ongoing research.

Syria: Ancient History – Modern Conflict seeks to illustrate the key findings of the University’s research projects and the contribution they have made to our understanding of the archaeology of this historically important area, while suggesting new methods of object based research and preservation.
