David Mattingly (EAMENA, University of Leicester), gives a talk in the first panel of the second day of the conference, The challenges and opportunities for protecting the past in Libya.

This presentation will focus on the work to date of the EAMENA team in relation to threats to the heritage of North African countries. Case studies illustrating the work of EAMENA show the range of the work, from initial site identification and mapping, to recording and monitoring threats and damage remotely, to direct interventions with national antiquities agencies and on the ground action. The importance of collaborative working and the sharing of information are highlighted, along with the need to build capacity ion this sort of work in all the Maghrebian countries.
