Case Study – Worldwide Award to the discovery of the Faida rock reliefs

posted in: News


Two years ago, the team of the “Kurdish-Italian Faida Archaeological Project” (KIFAP) found ten Assyrian rock reliefs in Faida, northern Iraqi Kurdistan. The archaeological mission was conducted by Professor Daniele Morandi Bonacossi from the Department of Humanities and Cultural Heritage (DIUM) of the University of Udine together with the Directorate of Antiquities of Duhok.

We are incredibly proud of having contributed with 3DF Zephyr to this wonderful finding, awarded as the most important archaeological discovery of 2019 and winning the International Archaeological Discovery Award “Khaled al-Asaad.

Many thanks to Alberto Savioli of DIUM and a member of the KIFAP team for kindly providing us with all the data for the complete case study!
