Poverty and unemployment have increased dramatically because of the war, and I've heard about cases where bulldozers were searching the ruins for treasures. It happened that during our night field trip, we ran into armed men.

Every member of the team loves Syria; everyone is keen to go back. They don't stop calling and asking me whether they can come with me again.

We know about cases when a monument was damaged because of battles nearby or even inside the sites, and it is also the case that when an area lacks state control, museums and sites of excavation do get looted. The authorities were already fighting against treasure-hunters before the conflict, which is not surprising as we're in, culturally, the richest area of the Middle-East.
