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.

Review:

The best thing on the market and essential for anyone who takes their Syrian travelling seriously. Hugh Kennedy, Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis:

As Syria becomes more accessible to outsiders, this revised handbook aims to guide visitors through the layers of history, linking various sites to such figures as Alexander and Saladin, and decoding the cultural influences which shaped the many monuments. The book is organized as a gazetteer.
