Palmyra, where Rome and Persia met. It was one of the world’s greatest cities in its day and is now a Unesco World Heritage site in the centre of modern-day Syria. It was in the news in 2015 when ISIS was busy destroying pre-Islamic monuments. The 18 black-and-white photos by Michel Eisenlohr in this exhibition date from before the destruction. The museum’s archaeological collections counterbalance the photos to great effect.
