Summary

Summary

Jordan: Past and Present will be of particular interest to Western readers, who rarely have the opportunity to visit the ancient monuments of Petra, Jerash, and Amman. The archaeological history of the Kingdom of Jordan and of each of the three principal Jordanian sites are carefully and clearly explained, and then each of the monuments-among them the Theater, Nymphaeum, Temenos Gate, and funerary monuments in Petra; the Arch of Hadrian, Sanctuary of Artemis, South Theater in Jerash; and the Temple of Hercules in Amman-are pictured as they exist today with overlays showing how they likely looked when still intact.
