Expropriation of Land


One of the goals of the Zeugma Archaeological Project is the transformation of the site into a protected archaeological park, which necessitates the expropriation of land from private owners. In 2005, Ministry of Culture and Tourism funds were mobilized for the expropriation of the entire site.  200.000 square meters of land were expropriated between 2005 and 2007, with another 300.000 still in private hands.
