Summary
"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, even in an age of mass tourism. 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 Umayyad Mosque of Damascus." "This handbook guides visitors through the layers of history, linking the sites to such figures as Alexander and Saladin and decoding the various cultural influences which shaped the many monuments. Widely praised as the definitive historical guide to the country, this revised edition will be welcomed by all those planning to visit Syria or with an interest in its history, art or architecture." "Monuments of Syria is organized as a gazetteer of all Syria's historical sites, with complementary sections on history and architectural influences and comprehensive chronologies and glossaries. New material has been added to this revised edition, including 20 colour photographs, while its format has been redesigned to a more convenient size for travellers."--BOOK JACKET
