Helgum [View over ruins. "It was a town - imagine! A town in the heart of the Syrian Desert. But a town of a very primitive kind. It lay up on top of the cliff, on a kind of peninsular formed by the winding Wadi Helgum and the only road to it from the upper level was a narrow neck which was fortified by a towered wall. Again all most primitive and terribly ruined, but there it was, a wall and towers guarding the approach to an irregular area which must be a good half mile squared and is completely covered with shapeless ruin heaps....I planned and photographed the gate wall."]
