    Prof. Sariel Shalev, Chair of the Department of Archaeology of the Haifa University, visited Myanmar between 6th to 20th of February 2014.During his visit, Professor Shalev visited numerous pagodas in Yangon, Pyay and Mandalay, and helped conducting a survey of the bells, together with scholars, staff and students from Pyay Field school of Archaeology and Ministry of Culture.
     
     
    The aim of this research is to provide the necessary analysis and typological documentation of the bells.  Furthermore, by analyzing of the chemical composition of the metal that was used for casting them, the results will provide an important data base in the study of the traditional techniques, that were used in the bells production and casting during the years.
     
    The entire project is an initiative of Israeli entrepreneur Amnon Nahamias, active for many years in Myanmar.
