Description
Once upon a time there was a land where civilization stretched back thousands of years, and places mentioned in ancient literature could be found among its significant archaeological sites. Sadly, it may be many years before Syria is once again a place to travel, and many of these sites may be gone. In a tour illustrated with color and black and white photos, Francis Russell takes us to 57 places and sites in Syria, from the walled city of Damascus, with its mosques and museums, to Krak des Chevaliers, a superb example of a medieval castle. Along the way he visits Palmyra, one of the great classical sites of the Near East; the monastery of St. Simeon, at the heart of the series of "dead cities" of Byzantine times; and Hama and its famous nourias, the wooden wheels that raise water from the river.
