Palmyra: Bride of the Desert

Palmyra: Bride of the Desert

"Recommended. This excellent documentary makes a fine addition to any library collection. Here we learn that though the other two cities, Petra and Carthage, are better known, Palmyra, Syria's premiere attraction, is just as fascinating and historically significant. An ancient trading center, the city offered respite to desert caravans as far back as 2000 B.C.." -EMRO Review
Nobel even in ruin, Palmyra, is also known as the "Rome of the East." The premier attraction in Syria, Palmyra offers ancient sites, such as the Monumental Arch, the Street of Columns, the Valley of Tombs, Agora, the Hypogeum of the Tree Brothers, the Temple of Bel and other Roman ruins. In the third century A.D. the extraordinary Queen Zenobia, who conquered Roman provinces from Egypt to Asia Minor, ruled the metropolis of 30,000. Hers is one of history's thrilling stories of triumph and tragedy. 02/08DE SCA 52 min.
