Dr Jennie Bradbury and Dr Philip Proudfoot bring together two branches of CBRL’s traditional disciplines – archaeology and anthropology – into conversation to examine the origins of the 2011 uprising that started in the Syrian countryside and spread to urban centres. They discuss how those same transformations in the rural economy were fundamental in damaging Syria’s natural and cultural heritage as well as impacting stability and security.
