Cultural Heritage of Libya lecture

Many thanks to all who attended a packed lecture by Dr Hafed Walda on the Cultural Heritage of Libya on 15 December.  He gave a visual tour of antiquities and sites that he had visited across Libya, and showed the range and importance of cultural heritage in the country.  He also endorsed the work of Blue Shield in helping to protect heritage sites from deliberate damage or destruction during the recent conflict, and provided a largely encouraging view of the current state of Libya’s heritage.

We will be running a series of evening seminars on international heritage in February, March and April 2012, and will post further details here shortly.
