History of Baalbek, by Michel Alouf

A guidebook to one of the most awesome archaeological sites in the world

Product Description

The fame of the ruins at Baalbek in Lebanon once drew many tourists. The Romans eventually built magnificent temples over a massive multi-level platform considered to be one of the only prediluvial sites that survived the flood. Here we find the amazing 1000-plus ton stones as part of the original temple platform. The largest cranes in the world would have difficulty lifting, let alone moving, these massive limestone blocks. These stones and other parts of this important site are described in this handy reference guide.  Paperback, ISBN 1585090638, 5 x 8 , 196 pp.
