One of the great challenges faced today by those responsible for ancient cultural sites is maintaining the delicate balance between conserving these fragile resources and making them available to increasing numbers of visitors. This book reports on an international symposium that addressed conservation issues in the Mediterranean region. The contributors focused on three sites--Piazza Armerina in Sicily, Knossos on Crete, and Ephesus in Turkey.
