On the very first day of the Conflict in Iraq, Dan Cruickshank and his team flew into Israel, to the war torn West Bank and the very real peril of cultural disaster.
In 1991, thirty nine Scud missiles hit Israel: what devastation would similar attacks wreak if they landed on the holy sites of Jerusalem, Bethlehem or Hebron?
Dan Cruickshank braves the streets and checkpoints of a heavily curfewed and dangerous Hebron to reach the Tomb of the Patriarchs, burial place of Abraham.
He said it's a very odd feeling knowing people had their sights trained on you, and it's strangely depressing seeing holy sites surrounded by armed guards.
He visits Hebron where the Tomb is divided in half Jewish/Muslim but guarded by armed Israelis and the Muslim section is empty.
There were no worshippers because they're often under 24 hour curfew.
Dan Cruickshank is one of the country’s leading architectural and historic building experts. He has written and presented a number of television programmes for the BBC, including Invasion, One Foot in the Past and Travels with Pevsner.
He is an active member of the Georgian Group and the Architectural Panel of the National Trust and is a director of the Spitalfields Historic Buildings Trust, a charity that acquires and repairs Georgian domestic architecture in London.
Dan is also a frequent contributor to The Architects' Journal and The Architectural Review and is the author of Life in The Georgian City, and The Guide To The Georgian Buildings Of Britain And Ireland.
