Restoration planning for ancient Arch of Ctesiphon

Published on August 11th, 2009 | by Admin


Plans are being drawn up to restore the area around the all-brick Arch of Ctesiphon in Iraq, built 16 centuries ago.

Iraqi and U.S. forces discussed their hopes to start several projects at the arch site within the next few months.

“We want to start improving the area by working around the arch, I think that’s our quick fix,” said Capt. Dallas Cheatham, of Fayetteville N.C., the commanding officer of Company B, 1st Battalion, 505th Infantry Regiment. “The first thing we are going to try and do is build a fence around this area and plant grass and trees, trying to make the area more beautiful and inviting.”
