Restoration works for ancient Arch de Triumph in Palmyra to begin

Restoration works of the Arch of Triumph of the Ancient City of Palmyra, which was destroyed by the terrorist organization ISIS in 2015, begins. The project will be carried out by a working team of Russian and Syrian archaeologists and other experts.

It was announced by Natalia Solovieva, head of the Center for Rescue Archeology of the International Institute of History and Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, after signing a cooperation agreement with the Department of Antiquities and Museums in Syria.

The team of archaeologists and other experts from the Institute for the History of Material Culture of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IIMK RAS) will start the fieldwork in April.

In August 2020, Russia had presented a three-dimensional model of the Palmyra antiquities. The model, which Russian media described as an accomplishment and gift, depicts images of the historical city of Palmyra, including the theater and temple that IS destroyed in 2015.

Natalia Solovieva, head of the Center for Rescue Archeology of the International Institute of History and Mathematics of the Russian Academy of Sciences said that the model “provides an opportunity to assess new excavation locations and study the area’s planning and reconstruction costs without going to the city itself.”

In the news in the Tass news agency, it was stated that the project, which will include Syrian experts too, will start in March of next year and the project will last for 3 years.

The restoration project of the Arch of Triumph of the Ancient City of Palmyra, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, is being carried out under the auspices of the Russian Geographical Society, with the participation of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
