A project of the MOSAIKON Initiative

This project aims to develop and broadly disseminate practical guidelines for sheltering archaeological sites with mosaics. There is an urgent need for the creation of guidelines for those in the heritage field and others involved in the decision making and implementation processes for archaeological sheltering, including post construction needs such as evaluation and maintenance. This project will increase the understanding of these processes and provide design criteria for appropriate sheltering solutions. Read More
