Danske udgravninger i Hama: Carlsbergfondets første ekspedition til Syrien

I 1930’erne stod Carlsbergfondet bag en arkæologisk ekspedition til Hama i Syrien. Der blev under udgravningerne fundet en lang række genstande, både lertøj, skulpturer og indskrifter. Genstandene blev skænket til Nationalmuseet, hvor mange stadig den dag i dag kan opleves.
