Foreword (excerpt)

When Mamoun Fansa met with Kay Kohlmeyer at one of Mamoun's legendary dinners in the summer of 2017 to discuss how best to support the Antiquities Service in Aleppo in carrying out its tasks professionally during and after the conflict, it quickly became clear that both had a different starting perspective: Mamoun was particularly concerned about the archaeological remains in the Old City of Aleppo – no wonder: he is from Aleppo, and he has repeatedly dealt with the destruction of the Old City as a world heritage site with various publication and conferences since 2013. Kay saw great dangers for the sites in the hinterland – in interpreting his excavations of the temple of the Weather God on the Citadel of Aleppo, it became clear how much the close and wider surroundings must be included in the considerations.

It was obvious that both points of view complemented each other wonderfully, and work on a strategy should begin quickly. Thus, in the atmosphere of lavish oriental hospitality owed to Mamoun and his wife Hayfa, the project described below was born, which now, after four years, has come to what we consider an extremely positive conclusion.
