Protective Shelters for Archaeological Sites

A symposium on protective shelters for archaeological sites was held in 2013 in Herculaneum, Italy, hosted by the Herculaneum Conservation Project, and funded through a grant provided by the Getty Foundation.

This weeklong symposium involved international experts from the field and heritage professionals from countries throughout the southern and eastern Mediterranean region, the focus area of MOSAIKON. The issues discussed included deciding to shelter, condition assessments and environmental issues, designing and implementing shelters, and evaluation and maintenance.
