The Ingholt Archive


The Syrian conflict has caused suffering to people and their heritage alike. The site of Palmyra, historically important and politically charged, has been a victim of this conflict, and its rich cultural heritage has been damaged. One way to mitigate the losses is to turn to archival material, and, through that, reconstruct what has been lost.

Harald Ingholt excavated in Palmyra, and studied Palmyrene art all his life. His photographic archive is an invaluable source of information, containing documentation images and notes on objects, while his diaries contain precise information about his excavations and his finds. 

Now available in print for the first time, the Ingholt Archive is here presented in its entirety as a lavishly illustrated four-volume set, published in the new series Archive Archaeology.
