The AIA Conservation and Site Preservation Committee is pleased award the 2015 Best Practices in Site Preservation Award to the Temple of the Winged Lions Cultural Resource Management (TWLCRM) initiative, which was launched in 2009 as a cooperative project by ACOR, the Department of Antiquities of Jordan, and the Petra Archaeological Park to rescue the Temple of the Winged Lions, a majestic Nabataean temple built on a promontory overlooking Petra’s city center. The Archaeological Institute of America hopes that TWLCRM’s efforts will serve as an inspiration to others as they look for ways to preserve archaeological heritage.
