Apamean Hell

Have a gander at the recent Google Earth images. Be sure to have your smelling salts with you before you do so. At least some sites in the area look unscathed.
Apamea has now become Syria’s Bad-Tibira. I encourage all who have the slightest interest in Syrian history to look carefully at what the recent war has done to the archaeological sites there. Worse than Macalister at Gezer.
