Episode Summary

The ancient empire of Syria was once a massive kingdom that included the territories of Lebanon, Israel, the West Bank, Gaza Strip and parts of Jordan. Long held as the "cradle of civilization," Syria is home to the Euphrates Valley, where the oldest civilizations in the world can be traced to, along with their languages, cultural beliefs and scientific breakthroughs. From an archaeologist's perspective, it is one of the world's most fascinating places. Syria still yields influence over the region. Its long time border disputes with Israel and Turkey keeps Syria embroiled in tension. Its current ruler Bashar al-Assad inherited his position in 2000 from his father, who ruled Syria for 30 years. His reign over the Ba'ath Party has seen a number of modernizing reforms, but he is also considered a restrictive and authoritarian force. Dr. Bob experiences the marvels of Syria's legendary past and the hopefulness of its future when he reunites with an old friend, an Iraqi who had escaped from his homeland with over one million other refugees. Then in Aleppo, Bob shops till he drops in one of the greatest marketplaces in the Middle East.moreless
