Harald Ingholt & Palmyra

This book grew out of the exhibition Harald Ingholt and Palmyra, which opened in 2015 at the Museum of Ancient Art at Aarhus University, Denmark. The exhibition is based on research done within the framework of the Palmyra Portrait Project, which is jointly funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and Aarhus University.

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.
