This fascinating documentary focuses on the ancient city of Palmyra; where trading and military routes led to and through the city. The 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 Euphrates, such as the Mari, are as distant in time from the heyday of Palmyra as the antique culture of Palmyra is from present day.

This documentary is a revelation about perhaps the greatest ancient city of the deserts of the Middle East-- part of the Silk Road.

What a marvelous way to learn about it. My only wish would be more discussion about the society built there.
