The Last Days Of Zeugma And Apamea

Archaeological Race Against Time

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
This program captures the feverish work of the multinational rescue archaeology team that excavated low-lying areas of Zeugma and key portions of Apamea before inundation by the Birecik Dam, in Turkey. Catherine Abadie-Reynal, director of the French contingent, and other experts describe their efforts to map the cities and to discern the tides of Greco-Roman history that once flowed through the region. Detailed 3-D computer re-creations and generous footage of architecture, murals, bronzes, coins, and the site's signature mosaics give a tantalizing glimpse of two priceless ancient urban centers-so recently found, so irretrievably lost.
