| Helmand | Bost

Images from a series of field trips undertaken in 2012/13 in order to assess the condition of the citadel at Bost and identify ways to reduce the damage being cased by erosion - see also 'A short walk in Helmand' in Minerva, March/April 2013. The conservation of the mausoleum of Shahzada Hussain has recently been completed by HAFO, with funding support from the US Department of State.
