The Archaeology Of Cultural Interaction: The Working Lives Of Greek Colonists And Indigenous Syrians In Seleucid Syria

Grant number: DP1092537 | Funding period: 2010 - 2013



The discovery of the unique importance of Jebel Khalid is well known internationally and the project has brought considerable overseas recognition of the contribution of Australian archaeology to Levantine studies. The project fosters research collaboration between Australian and Syrian researchers and institutions and establishes Australia as a major centre for the study of the archaeology of Syria. It also fosters goodwill between Australia and an important member of the Arab world and contributes to improving local perceptions of that region.
