The Roman Empire Off Limits - 05/11/2016, London (England)
This year we explore the archaeology of countries where sites have been damaged or destroyed, and where fieldwork is not currently possible. The experiences of Gertrude Bell remind us that the political and archaeological issues in these areas are hardly new.
