Stop the Heritage Drain

Damage to the Ancient City of Bosra, Syria

 

On 23 February 2011 (top), the Roman theatre and nearby archaeological site are undisturbed. By 29 April 2014, however, earthen ramps and berms have been constructed near the theater’s east entrance, and a small hill at the site to the west has been partially excavated (arrows).

Between October 2009 and April 2014, a number of probable shell craters associated with structural damage have appeared in the Bosra World Heritage site (yellow arrows) including a hole in the roof of the Al-Omari Mosque. A probable shell crater is also present in the standing ancient Roman ruins. Images ©2014, DigitalGlobe, NextView License | Analysis AAAS. Coordinates: 32.51N, 36.48E.
