Dates for your Diary
Meetings
Tue Mar 17th Ashmolean Museum curator Denise Darbyshire will introduce us to 'The Wonder that was Syria' in her presentation of this fragile region. We may remember our horror as news of the destruction of Syria's ancient monuments unfolded in 2016. For over two years, IS had been plundering and destroying various places of worship and antiquities across Iraq, Libya and then Syria, often looting the valuable treasures there to fund further activities. But what has happened since IS was driven out? Is anything being done to restore any of these famous and precious sites? And how are the people coping and getting their lives back? Denise will show us the ancient sites and buildings in their former glory, explain the destruction and then talk of the plans to restore much of it to its former glory. Her wide knowledge and expertise in this country make this an unmissable talk!

After lunch, at 1.15pm, Mark Wordley will continue the Middle Eastern theme with a presentation on the current political situation across Syria and neighbouring countries, allies or adversaries
