Posted by Caabu on 31 Jul 2017

Former Australian ambassador to Syria and author of "Aleppo: A History" and "Monuments of Syria" lectured on the cultural legacy of Syria in the context of the ongoing civil war. The talk was arranged in cooperation by Caabu and the Mosaic rooms. 

Caabu Director, Chris Doyle on Ross Burns' book on Aleppo: "Few people have done more to promote and preserve an understanding of extraordinary heritage of Syria than Ross Burns. This authoritative work on the history of Aleppo, one of the world's oldest cities stands proudly alongside his 'Monuments of Syria' and history of Damascus, detailing the unique treasures that survive but many that have been lost forever."
