Safeguarding of casually-uncovered mosaics in Afrin17/10/2015 - عدد القراءات : 2911

Staff members of DGAM, in cooperation with the local society in Afrin, far Northern Syria, manage to safeguard and preserve several floor mosaic panels, which were uncovered casually in the region, near the village of Albiskeh (Khirbet Kouleh).

These mosaics date to the Byzantine period, and represent scenes of animals and impressive geometrical forms in vertical and horizontal stripes.

We, at DGAM, highly appreciate the attention and efforts of the local society to defend the Syrian cultural heritage, and protect it from looting and destruction by the specialized gangs in the region.
