EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph showcases the majestic Krak des Chevaliers, also known as Crac des Chevaliers or Hosn al Akrad, in Syria. The fortress, depicted here in a print from the 1950s by Aerofilms Ltd. , holds a rich history that dates back to its construction in 1142 when it was entrusted to the Knights Hospitallers. For over a century, this formidable stronghold served as their primary military base. The image captures the grandeur and strategic significance of Krak des Chevaliers, with its imposing walls and towers standing tall against the Syrian landscape. Its architectural splendor is evident even from above, highlighting its medieval design and remarkable preservation. However, despite its resilience throughout centuries of conflicts and sieges, Krak des Chevaliers eventually fell into the hands of Mamluk Sultan Baibars in 1271. This marked a turning point for this iconic fortress. Recognizing its historical importance and outstanding universal value, UNESCO designated Krak des Chevaliers as part of a World Heritage Site in 2006. This recognition ensures that future generations can appreciate and learn from this exceptional example of medieval military architecture. Through this print preserved by Historic England Archive's collection, we are transported back in time to witness the enduring legacy of Krak des Chevaliers – an emblematic symbol of strength and fortitude amidst turbulent times.
