Great importance is given to the development and reconsideration of existing and creation of new approaches to the protection, preservation and management of heritage. This is a challenge for many professions involved in these activities, and therefore for the architectural profession. There are various approaches when it comes to protecting the heritage. In the case of archaeological sites, protective shelters are often a solution. Technological solutions for covering ancient sites in order to present mosaics in situ are discussed in the paper. The distinction between the two concepts of coverage is taken into consideration. The first concept is based on covering the site using protective structure without closing the space, while the second concept implies covering the site by forming a closed space. The subject of this paper is a comparative analysis of two case studies that represent the two concepts of covering the archaeological area in order to protect and present mosa...ics in situ. This analysis will examine the applied concepts, technical solutions, used materials and structures to cover the site. The aim of the study is to identify the advantages and disadvantages of the solutions, as well as to determine whether their performance has resulted in the devastation of the site or contributed to its higher quality presentation.
