Product Notes

This fascinating documentary focuses on the ancient city of Palmyra; where trading and military routes led to and through this city. Palmyra is a great oasis, a place for the caravans to rest when travelling from Mesopotamia to the west, and to Damascus and to the Mediterranean. This program explores the desert and the Bedouins who live there; for since time immemorial Syrian society and culture has been determined by the Bedouins and the city-dwellers. The ancient cultures that developed along the banks of the Euphrates, such as the Mari, are as distant in time from the heyday of Palmyra as the antique culture of Palmyra is from our day and age. Crac de Chevaliers, one of the best preserved medieval fortresses, is an important testament to the age of the crusaders. Also, in a valley near this fortress lies the renowned Cloister of St. George.
