Scanning for Syria

Thursday 7 June 2018
National Museum of Antiquities


Archaeologists and engineers

What if archaeologists cannot work on location, because of war or conflict, and the artifacts have been stolen or the archaeological site demolished? Syrian cultural heritage has been under attack for more than seven years now. Archaeologists team up with engineers in the Scanning for Syria project to solve these problems. Scanners and 3D printing enlarge our knowledge of the past and make up our archaeology of the future.
