Philip Mansel chronicles the history of Syria’s first capital city, vividly describing Aleppo as a pinnacle of cultural and economic power. Few places are as ancient and diverse as Aleppo, a once vibrant world city, famous for its food and music, where Muslims, Christians and Jews lived and traded together in relative peace and harmony. Presenting many first-hand accounts for the first time, Mansel’s portrait is a poignant testament to a city shattered by Syria’s civil war. In conversation with David Abulafia.

This event took place on Sunday 26 February 2017.
