The year is 1899. A youth poses at the excavation site of Tell Haraf in modern-day Syria – then part of the Ottoman Empire. The site was discovered that same year by German diplomat, Baron Max von Oppenheim, while surveying the region during the building of the Baghdad Railway. So, it’s very possible this lad was connected in some way to the Oppenheim party. Oppenheim returned to Tell Haraf in 1911, and hauled many of the ancient treasures back to Germany. The Tell Haraf Museum in Berlin housed these treasures until it was bombed by Allied Forces in 1943.
