ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Special thanks are due to the Syrian Ministry of Tourism that made the travel for this project possible. Much of the research took place while I held a Fulbright grant, and the staff at the American Cultural Center provided much support. There are too many individuals who provided information to list here. Special mention should be made of Sawsan Jouzy of the Ministry of Tourism and Dr. Widad Khoury from the Department of Antiquities.
