It has been a philosophy of the university of Mosul and its scientific and cultural programs since its establishment to interact with the community, and one of the most prominent means of interaction was to uncover the ancient and Islamic monuments of the region and to preserve its popular heritage. Therefore, a prestigious delegation from the University of Mosul visited a number of archaeological sites near the city, especially those in which foreign excavation organizations work to learn about the scientific methods used in excavation. The first is the northern Nineveh Wall, the second is the Bashtabia Castle, and the last is the Sherikhan site, north of the University of Mosul.
