Arkæologer skal i nyt projekt undersøge Syriens antikke magt- og handelscentrums cirkulære økonomi og se på, hvordan det kan inspirere os til at løse fremtidens udfordringer.

Harald Ingholt & Palmyra

This book grew out of the exhibition Harald Ingholt and Palmyra, which opened in 2015 at the Museum of Ancient Art at Aarhus University, Denmark. The exhibition is based on research done within the framework of the Palmyra Portrait Project, which is jointly funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and Aarhus University.
