Syria and Jordan 2010

Tour Leader: Dr John Tidmarsh

For thousands of years, Syria and Jordan controlled the inland caravan routes along which goods were transported from the Orient to the Mediterranean. From the Nabataeans in their stronghold at the ‘rose-red city’ of Petra to the merchants in the bustling markets of Aleppo, the region has a rich and fascinating history, having been inhabited over time by several civilisations, each of which has left its individual mark.
