"The Dead Cities Of Syria"

Syria remains in the news as its government continues to use violence while cracking down on protests. It's the latest of many upheavals that the country has been through since its formation as a state. In fact, there are many reminders of past turmoil and upheaval. Over 700 abandoned settlements bear the collective name "The Dead Cities of Syria".

These abandoned municipalities litter the landscape, and contain the remains of a confident, vibrant and sophisticated culture that disappeared over fifteen hundred years ago. Fantastic ancient structures are left behind as a testament to the ingenuity of the people who once lived here.
