Each page has several excellent photos of the ruins in a particular area of the holy land. Many aerial shots too and when needed a labelled drawing of layouts of the buildings now in ruins. One drawback is the small print that is used for the main text...the size usually used for captions. Good historical explanations of the significance of these cities, castles, temples, etc. now in ruins. Fascinating to read through. A good introduction before actually visiting these sights.
