Erbil: Research, Interpretation and Conservation of the World's Oldest City

Exhibition and Lecture on Erbil
organised by The British Institute for the Study of Iraq & Gulan www.bisi.ac.uk/www.gulan.org.uk

A Lecture by David Michelmore and Dr John MacGinnis

Erbil Citadel is distinguished from almost all other archaeological sites in that it appears to have been continuously inhabited throughout its 6,000 - 8,000 years of history, now illuminated by an extensive 5-year programme of archaeological, historical and architectural research initiated as a UNESCO project. This lecture will comment on this protracted history and look at the recording and conservation of Erbil’s unique architectural and urban heritage. Prior to the lecture, from 6.00pm onwards, there will be an exhibition of Anthony Kersting’s photographs of Kurdistan in the 1940s and a selection of panels on the historical architecture of Erbil and its history from 2200BC (courtesy of of H.E. Dr Kawa M Shakir, Minister of Culture and Youth in the Kurdistan Regional Government.
