The worsening situation in Syria places thousands of archaeological sites in immediate danger of current and future looting. A full discussion of the sites affected can be found here: Cunliffe, Emma. 2012, Damage to the Soul: Syria’s Cultural Heritage in Conflict. 16 May 2012. Global Heritage Fund. The British Associate of Near Eastern Archaeology (BANEA) and other interested parties call on the British Government, UNESCO and the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) to protest to all parties to the conflict and petition for: 1. The removal of armed encampments, troops and weaponry from archaeological sites, 2. protection of archaeological sites and museums from looting, 3. recovery of stolen artefacts and the prosecution of the thieves and those who benefit from the thefts. Updates and information can be found at www.banea.org
