    Perhaps the "Ugarit" language is a nice theme for a stall. {BTW: Ugarit is also to find at the so called "Unicode" (Ugarit is to find there as table "U10380"), the "Universal Character Set" (UCS), which is very important for modern IT Technologies.... }

    Good luck

    Great project!

    As was pointed out, even without libraries (have they gone out of fashion?) oodles of info are readily available on the Internet. The culture and history of Syria go way way back. For instance, you can tie in the Silk Road.
    Or the Crusaders.
    Or more recent events related to the strife in the Middle East.
