Journey through A Country Called Syria, a traveling collection that brings to life the history and heritage of Syrian culture. This unique exhibition allows its viewers to explore Syria from its ancient beginnings to the present civil war.

The region that makes up the modern country of Syria is one of the oldest cradles of human civilization, and this exhibit highlights UC Berkeley's rich library collection on Syria along with the cultural artifacts we were lent. The aim of the exhibition is to highlight some of that diversity and complexity and give Syria and the Syrian a more accessible human dimension.
