The Mystery of Damascus



Mark Warman



Original Date

I am a dork. I read fantasy novels every night. They are all based in worlds that essentially reflect the Middle Ages.

I’ve always been drawn to ancient history and wanted to learn more about the Crusades. I wanted to get an idea of what the Arab world looked like to European knights who traveled incredible distances to completely alien lands. As soon as I started, I found a story about a sword made of Damascus Steel and was hooked.
