In continuing our discussion on the cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of State and ASOR, known as the Syrian Heritage Initiative, we’re discussing the preservation projects of the initiative. The initiative’s Project Manager for Conservation and Heritage Preservation, LeeAnn Barnes Gordon sat down with me to talk about her portion of the project. Take a listen! Be sure to keep an eye out for our final installment of the Syrian Heritage Initiative focused podcasts, in which we talk about the bibliography portion of the initiative.
