Monumental Arch, Palmyra, Syria
Palmyra was an ancient city in central Syria. Located in an oasis, it had long been a vital caravan stop for travellers crossing the Syrian desert and was known as the Bride of the Desert. In the 2nd millennium BC, it was a trading city in the extensive network that linked Mesopotamia and northern Syria. Palmyra is mentioned in the Bible as part of Solomon's Kingdom. by Rikko77
People in the ancient world believed that the city of Troy, as well as the Trojan War, were entirely historical. But it was only in 1871 that the physical remains of Troy were discovered, at Hissarlik in Turkey. The discovery was made by Heinrich Schliemann, who followed textual evidence in the epics by Homer and other ancient references to find the city.
