About this lecture
Artefacts of our shared human history are both incredibly precious and incredibly fragile. Organized by Being Human in collaboration with the British School at Rome, this day-long workshop, brought together some of the archaeologist, classicists and others leading the fight to preserve the traces of our past. Roberto Nardi presented the MCC-Mosaikon program, underlining the importance of training local conservators to respond to the increasing threats to archaeological sites in the Middle East and North Africa. He described the training courses on mosaic conservation held by CCA aimed to enhance local capacity in emergency intervention and regular maintenance, for teams from Syria, Jordan, Tunisia and Libya, dealing with sites subject to war damage.
