UNESCO Rescue Archaeology Mission provides instrumental findings to set up better approach for post-disaster responses to rehabilitation of earthquake damaged heritage
PDF File Size: 340 KB | Download   
UNESCO sponsored a multidisciplinary team, to undertake a rescue archaeology
mission prior to reconstruction, between 5 October and 22 November 2015,
targeting various monument zones across the Kathmandu Valley World Heritage
property. The mission illustrated the role that archaeology can play in guiding
post-disaster responses to reconstruction and rehabilitation of earthquake
damaged heritage.

Focusing on Durbar Squares in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan, the team
used Ground Penetrating Radar to locate subsurface archaeology to increase understanding of the development of the heritage sites, and assessed damage
to foundations through excavations, offering invaluable training for Nepalese
professionals. The surveys located archaeology under pavements and excavations confirmed the presence of earlier buildings.
