Syria is home to some of the world's richest historical and archaeological remains--dating from the Bronze Age through Byzantine times to the Ottoman Period. Until now, however, they have been little known and rarely visited. Only a handful of sites are familiar from travel literature: the Roman desert city of Palmyra, the Crusader castle of Krak des Chevaliers, and the great Ummayad Mosque of Damascus. This is the definitive historical guide to Syria.
The definitive guide to Syria - Times Literary Supplement. 'The best thing on the market and essential for anyone who takes their Syrian travelling seriously" Hugh Kennedy, Times Literary Supplement. "This excellent, well-organized and highly readable guide is a must for any traveller seriously committed to Syria" Erica C.D.Hunter, British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies.
