About

The Antioch Recovery Project (ARP) investigates mosaics from the ancient city of Antioch (modern Antakya, Turkey, near the border with Syria) now in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art. Excavated by an international team of archaeologists in the 1930s, hundreds of ancient mosaics from the cosmopolitan city were subsequently dispersed to museums across the globe, with over thirty mosaics entering the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

Phase I of this research-driven course will focus on three chronological groups: Ancient Antioch, The Excavations, and Museum Afterlives.
