Acre, Israel


Contributor Ruslan Paul put together this remarkable video of Acre (Acco), an ancient city on Israel's Mediterranean coastline, between Tel Aviv and Haifa.  Sitting on a site which dates to 3000 BC, the city became a key Christian stronghold during the Third Crusade.  In 1291, the city was besieged by forces under control of the Mamluk Sulatanate; despite a desperate last stand by the Knights Templar, it fell after about a month.  The recapture of Acre is considered one of the key events of the Medieval Period.
