Monuments of Mosul in Danger
A new website of the project called Monuments of Mosul in Danger
that our researchers Miroslav Melčák and Ondřej Beránek are part of includes a list and an interactive map of destroyed monuments created through the analysis of satellite imagery.
The list and the map are interconnected with profile lists of individual monuments showing satellite images documenting the scope of the destruction. The map documents the situation as of the end of August 2015.
The exhibition "Monuments of Mosul in Danger" is taking place between February 8 and March 31, 2017 at The Galery of Science and Art, The Czech Academy of Sciences, Národní 3, Praha 1. More information about the exhibition and the project can be found here.
Research fellow of the Oriental Institute Dr. Miroslav Melčák is a co-author of the book "Medieval Urban Landscape in Northeastern Mesopotamia" which was pubslished by a prestigious Oxford publisher Archaeopress. More about the publication can be found here.
