About this title


Petra is a magical place and unquestionably a must-see for all those interested in antiquity. Surrounded by inaccessible rocks in southern Jordan, it remained hidden from the world for many centuries. The lost city of the Nabataeans was only rediscovered in 1812 by the Swiss traveller, Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. Much has changed since then, as Petra has developed into a tourist centre to rival the Athenian Acropolis and the Egyptian Pyramids of Giza. ArchaeoGuides is intended for all lovers of the ancient world, but is also suitable for a wider audience. Written using easily understandable terminology, the guidebooks lead you through the ruins of ancient cities, revealing their stories, art and architecture. The books also include important tips on what is worth visiting and the best order in which to do it. Thanks to numerous maps, sketches, and photographs, you will not miss out on any interesting monument or site, whilst the accompanying practical information section should allow you to make a detailed plan for your visits. So what makes the ArchaeoGuides series stand out? - It is written in easily understandable language by specialists in the field of archaeology. - It contains a host of interesting archaeological, historical, artistic and architectural facts. - There are a great many maps, sketches and photographs of monuments. - A glossary of more difficult specialist terminology is included. - Practical information on visiting the sites helps you to plan the specifics of your trip.
