A caravan is a group of travellers journeying together, usually with horses or camels. The word is most commonly associated with the Middle East and North Africa.

Aleppo in Northern Syria is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. The mid 1920s was a politically turbulent time in the history of the city and surrounding areas.
