"August 2022 commemorates the second year of the devastating explosion which took place in Beirut city, killing at least 218 people and injuring more than 7,000 people.
It also caused 74 archaeologically significant glass vessels to shatter into pieces in the Archaeological Museum of the American University of Beirut. Two years on, the glass conservators, curators and scientists in Beirut and at the British Museum have revived many of these beautiful glass objects and their unique stories...
This talk will highlight the project, the relationships built and the processes undertaken to create this very special exhibition..."
