The 2013 issue 1/4 of the Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies, edited by Ann E. Killebrew and Sandra A. Scham, presents a special Forum section devoted to the impact of armed conflict and revolution on archaeology in Libya, Egypt and Syria.
The topic is still of extreme relevance today, and different cases of conflict-related damage to cultural heritage in Syria and Libya have been presented on this blog.
In this issue of the Journal the complexities of preserving the past in the context of a volatile present are explored.
