Britain will set up a team of “rescue archaeologists,” mirroring the fictional archeologist Indiana Jones, to salvage historic site from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group, UK paper the Daily Mail reported.
A group of curators from the UK will travel to Iraq, Syria, and Libya where they will work with fellow curators there to identify any items that could be rescued.
Director of the British Museum Neil MacGregor said he is working with colleagues in Iraq to “establish a specialist corps of rescue archaeologists” in the embattled country.
