Site Conservation Seminar in Israel

In October 1994 the Getty Conservation Institute cosponsored a two-day seminar in Israel on site conservation for senior archaeologists. The seminar helped to identify issues and participants for a formal course on site conservation to be held in 1995 in Israel. The Institute is collaborating on the seminar and the course with the Israeli Antiquities Organization.

In April 1994, as part of the annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology, the Getty Conservation Institute offered a one-day symposium on "The Management and Conservation of Rock Art Sites." Joining with the Institute in organizing this event was the US/ICOMOS Rock Art Committee and the Rock Art Archive of the University of California, Los Angeles. Participants in the filled-to-capacity symposium included rock art specialists working for a variety of agencies and organizations, including the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, the Archaeological Conservancy, and the American Rock Art Research Association.
