Over 4,000 funeral portraits from Palmyra, Syria were documented by Danish archaeologist Harald Ingholt (1896-1985). The majority of this ancient statuary heritage has since been destroyed or looted during conflict. Ingholt's archives are currently housed at Aarhus University, Denmark, where they will be documented, digitized, and published online in order to make them accessible to the public.
