For our planned long-termed project of excavating and documenting mass
graves in Iraq Archaeologists for Human Rights request applications from
ANCIENT NEAR EASTERN ARCHAEOLOGISTS,
FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGISTS and
to work with us on basis of a labour contract. Tasks will include survey and
excavation of mass grave sites, and training of Iraqi personnel.
Archaeologists for Human Rights (AFHR) is an NGO dedicated to the tasks of
documenting and excavating mass graves of persons murdered by Saddam
Hussein's regime in Iraq. A small team is currently in Erbil and has made
arrangements to undertake this planned long-term project in co-ordination
with authorities on location. Given the extraordinary number of mass graves
(currently several hundred are known) and more than 300,000 murder victims,
many years worth of work in Iraq is anticipated.
