Penn Archaeologists Working to Restore Iraqi Sites

Backed by more than $4 million in funding from various sources, including the U.S. State Department, a team led by Penn archaeologists Richard L. Zettler and Michael Danti will support the efforts of Iraq’s State Board of Antiquities and Heritage to rebuild the Tutunji House, plus two other large sites -Saint George’s Monastery and the Yazidi central temple at Lalish - as well as start restoring three smaller Christian churches outside of Mosul.
