Syrian volunteers covered mosaics in the Ma’arra Museum with a protective layer of glue and cloth designed to fortify and keep the tesserae together. Several truckloads of sandbags were then laid out to protect the mosaics from damage caused by further attacks. (Image courtesy Penn Cultural Center at the University of Pennsylvania Museum)
