Old Penn's demolition, 1964-66.

Baalbek was the largest Roman temple ever built & sits atop thousand-ton stone blocks. (The pillars of Stonehenge weigh a fraction of that.) But letโ€™s not forget that like Palmyra, itโ€™s also an Islamic site, a medieval citadel. Islamic towns were cleared by modern archaeologists. twitter.com/paulmmcooper/statu
