A new record number of attendees heard a fascinating, if discouraging, presentation on the threats to ancient sites and cultures in the Middle East, not only from groups such as ISIS but also from other warring factions and looters.  Prof. Thomason also presented groups that are documenting and working to preserve what can be in the face of these losses.
