Research and Rescue Excavations in the Kathmandu Valley

This exhibition was intially hosted at the Durham World Heritage Visitor Centre between the 2nd and 27th November 2015. It contextualises the earthquakes, detailing the damage to cultural property in Kathmandu, and responses to the cultural disaster. It also raises serious questions regarding the legal protection afforded to the debris from monuments after their destruction, and the future challenges for Kathmandu as people look to rebuild their city.
