Remote sensing and endangered archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa

Thursday 2 November 2017, 16.00-17.00
BP Lecture Theatre
Free, booking essential

The Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa (EAMENA) project is discovering, documenting and assessing threats to archaeological sites using satellite imagery and aerial photographs. Robert Bewley, University of Oxford, will present the approach, results and future strategies for the project.

The major threats to these archaeological sites are agricultural activities, road and dam building, conflict zones, looting and the huge increase in village, town and urban expansion, as a result of the quickly rising populations. The EAMENA project is creating an initial basic record and an assessment of the threats to sites, for use by heritage professionals in each of the 20 countries, from Mauritania to Iran.

Funded by the Arcadia Fund Since 2015, the project has been awarded an additional grant from the Cultural Protection Fund to train heritage professionals in the EAMENA methodology in six of the EAMENA countries, so that work can continue at a local level.
