Palmyra

Ancient Losses : The Ongoing Global Devastation of The Wealth of Human Knowledge: Syria : Destroying Our Future by Forgetting Our Pa.

Palmyra was once a part of the vast Roman Empire and one of the richest cities in the Near East. Some say the city dates back to the times of King SolomonThe transfer of goods and knowledge flowed along the Silk Road from the depths of Asia Minor to the Mediterranean ports, and the city's strength was founded on both its strategic location and the taxes demanded of all who wished to travel safely across her domains.

The Ruins of Palmyra, a World Heritage site in Syria, closed by ISIS forces today who have plans to destroy the site.
