We resume our conversations with American archaeologists who are working to help Iraqis and Syrians preserve their cultural heritage in the midst of the fighting that continues to wreak havoc and destruction in the area that has often been called the cradle of civilization.

This week’s program features Katharyn Hanson, a University of Chicago grad who has been working with the Archaeological Site Preservation Program at the Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage in Erbil, Iraq.

UPDATE: An article on how the churches of Erbil are serving the refugees who have come to their city.
