UNESCO adds Tauric Chersonesos to World Heritage List

Posted: October 3, 2013

UNESCO's World Heritage Committee, meeting this month in Cambodia, has added ancient Chersonesos (near Sevastopol, Ukraine) to its roster of World Heritage sites - thanks in no small part to Professors Joseph Carter and Adam Rabinowitz, under whose leadership and direction UT's Institute of Classical Archaeology (ICA) has played a leading role over the past twenty years in excavating this remarkable site and developing plans for its conservation.
