Palmyra: Pearl of the Desert

Readers will find a total of nine short contributions, one originally written in Norwegian and the rest in Danish, and all subsequently translated into English. They treat a wide range of themes, with Palmyra as their common denominator. This bouquet of accessible academic prose reflects the very significant research on Palmyra undertaken in the Nordic region since 2010 – work which has placed Nordic and Danish scholarship at the forefront of international research on the subject of Palmyra.
