In Damascus, every layer of the history has built precisely on top of its predecessors for at least three millennia, leaving a detailed archaeological record of one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Lavishly illustrated, Damascus: A History is a compelling and unique exploration of a fascinating city
