The ancient histories of Palmyra (Syria), Petra (Jordan), and Hatra (Iraq) tell a story of cultural exchange: their citizens shared trade routes, built comparable monuments, and worshiped common local and regional gods. These cities’ universal value has been recognized by local and global communities, but protecting and preserving their remnants as a shared human heritage remains a significant challenge.
Co-hosted in Arabic and English by the Getty Research Institute and the American Center of Research in Jordan, this program brings together archeologists from these regions to gain insights on the future of these once vibrant cities and efforts toward their preservation.
