This project will undertake several preventive and emergency interventions at three important archaeological sites in the Gaza Strip, including the Roman Necropolis of Ard-al-Moharibeen and the newly discovered Mosaic of Al Bureij.
This ambitious project will undertake a number of preventive and emergency interventions at three important archaeological sites in the Gaza Strip, including the Roman Necropolis of Ard-al-Moharibeen discovered in January 2022 and the newly discovered Mosaic of Al Bureij, a spectacular mosaic pavement, which is currently considered to date back to the 5th – 7th century. An oral history training programme will enable young people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank to develop new skills and a further exchange programme between Syrian and Gazan adolescents will be implemented to support new regional collaborations. An inclusive and varied series of cultural activities in collaboration with civil society and youth focussed groups will also engage local audiences and celebrate Palestinian cultural heritage.
