RESEARCH

Research group of the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences of the Lebanese University

We seek s to develop new technologies in archaeology by encouraging multidisciplinary research projects of national and international collaboration. ARCHe's research group incorporates students in its work plan.  The team is composed of archaeologists, historians, geographers and will carry collaborations with Lebanese and international museums, institutes and universities.

Our objectives is to develop archaeological, historical and geographical research in the outlying regions of Lebanon, to create opportunities for researchers to collaborate with each other at the national and international level, and for students to train in a scientific research environment and to benefit from professional and academic supervision.
