Beirut On The Rebound

The Cedars of Lebanon are famous-great powerful trees that have stood in the hills above Beirut for millennia. The oldest of these are thought to date back beyond the birth of Islam and Christianity. They are massive trees, with trunks as wide as 8 feet in diameter and pungent, knot-free wood known for its resilience and resistance to parasites and disease. These qualities made the lumber highly desirable construction material for the ancient Egyptians and Palestinians. Many sarcophagi unearthed in Egypt were made of this wood.
