Historical images, photographs and studies of the ancient desert trading city of Palmyra .The culture of Palmyra was influenced by Greco-Roman culture and produced distinctive art and architecture that combined eastern and western traditions. Many of the surviving ruins of this unique and important site were destroyed by ISIL in 2015 and the destruction continues as the frontline in Syria moves back and forth.
