About

The Petra Garden and Pool Project is located in the heart of Petra. The excavations currently focus on a large pool with a central pavilion flanking a monumental colonnaded garden. The complex is adjacent to the "Great Temple" complex, excavated by Professor Martha Joukowski (Brown University), which has been recently restored. During the 2013 season, excavations will focus on the pool, pavilion and grotto area. During the field school students will learn excavation techniques and have evening lectures by the excavation staff and local specialists on a variety of topics related to the site and the region. In addition to recovering the architecture, stratigraphy, and artifacts of a Hellenistic Nabataean/Roman site, students will also work closely with ground penetrating radar data, techniques of environmental archaeology (sampling, retrieval, identification of plant remains, faunal remains, etc.), ceramic analysis and site survey.
