Penn archaeologists, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Mosul and Iraq’s State Board of Antiquities and Heritage, seek to undo the terrible destruction ISIS wrought, particularly on targeted minority groups.

In September 2019, the University of Pennsylvania’s Mosul Heritage Stabilization Program (MHSP) began assisting in the restoration of sites that have been damaged by ISIS. The program plans on rebuilding the Tutunji House, St. George’s Monastery, the Yazidi central temple at Lalish, and three smaller Christian churches located outside of Mosul.
