Synopsis

Iraq and Afghanistan are steeped in history, and both nations are rich in archaeological sites and cultural heritage. With a wealth of cultural landscapes, including a complex array of indigenous societies (including the Greeks) that have passed through these amazing lands from antiquity to contemporary times, this lecture will focus on two Hellenistic sites in Iraq (Seleucia and Opis) and Afghanistan (Aï Khanum and Kandahar). 

From her position as both a researcher and a military officer, Andrea is uniquely placed to discuss the importance of protecting archaeological and cultural heritage in war torn nations such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and will aim to highlight key issues facing the archaeological community and Coalition Forces in protecting archaeological and cultural heritage sites during armed conflict.
