The Future of Babylon

Since 2004, World Monuments Fund (WMF) has been working with the Iraq State Board of Antiquities and Heritage (SBAH). Today the primary focus of this collaboration is the development of a site management plan for Babylon, one of the world's most important archaeological sites. Working with the SBAH, WMF will assist in mapping the archaeological site, identifying essential conservation projects, planning for tourism management, and helping to begin the process of readying the site for local and international tourists, which will include the eventual reopening of the site's two museums. This five-minute video, narrated by Gina Haney and Jeff Allen, WMF Babylon Project Coordinators, details WMF’s site management plan for Babylon, a blueprint for working on the site today as well as planning for the future.
