International scholars Dr. Monica Hanna and Dr. Anne Porter investigate the positive work currently being undertaken in the Middle East to protect local antiquities and sites, and the changing levels of engagement of archaeologists with local communities. Hanna and Porter will shine a light onto the current state of archaeology and heritage preservation, but also address what local Canadian communities can do to participate in global solutions.
