Last September, if you happened by City Hall Park, you might have noticed a two thousand year old imperial Roman ruin. Or at least what looked a lot like a Roman Ruin. The 25-foot-tall stone arch was a replica, created using 3D printing technology. The original was destroyed by ISIS last year after they captured the ancient site of Palmyra in Syria. It was placed downtown to raise awareness of cultural destruction. But the recreation itself raises questions for conservationists about how world heritage is preserved.
