At the Archaeology in Conflict Conference in London last week, Dr. Abbas Al-Hussainy, the new Chairman of the SBAH, launched an appeal "to archaeologists and universities who had in the past excavated in Iraq, or who wished to continue working in Iraq, to get in touch. The archaeological records for many sites, such as Babylon, were lost, and so they need help to reconstruct old excavations and to find out what people plan for future excavations." (King).
