Palmyra: Online Resources



The archaeological site of Palmira was under attack for two years, from May 2015 to March 2017. The ancient city was destroyed and an extraordinary cultural heritage has been lost.
To counter these dramatic events, the international scientific community has started uploading open data to internet - documents, photographs and projects -, with the aim of sharing as much as possible the history of Palmyra.
