    Tell Mozan, Syria

    Giorgio Buccellati, co-director of the Mozan/Urkesh Archaeological Project, has been working to conserve mudbrick at Tell Mozan (ancient Urkesh) in Syria. His innovative approach combines archaeological research with creative preservation solutions. Buccellati's ability to work with the local community, providing training and income, ensure a local commitment to the project that is critical to the long-term preservation of the site.  Plans are also underway for an eco-archaeological park.
