[SR: 4941539], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780718890124], Lutterworth Press, Lutterworth Press, Book, [PU: Lutterworth Press], 1999-12-30, Lutterworth Press, In his classic account of the antiquities of Jordan, Gerald Harding writes with an erudition based upon a lifetimeis knowledge of the region, describing all the major sites of interest in the country. Some of the most remarkable and famous sites in the world, from Petra, the unique Nabataean city hewn from sandstone, to Mafjar, the most elaborately planned and lavishly decorated Umayyad palace in the Middle East, with the largest single area of ancient mosaic in the world, lie within Jordan or the West Bank. Archaeological evidence of human occupation exists from Palaeolithic times until the Bronze Age when much of Jordan's history may be adduced from the stories of the Old Testament. The area was subjugated by the Assyrians, the Persians, the Greeks, and the Arabs whose houses, palaces, theatres and castles often provide the principal surviving evidence of these peoples: Jericho, the oldest city in the world, where remarkable statues of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic period were found; Jerash, a large and comprehensive Roman city on the fringe of the desert, only rediscovered in 1806; huge Crusader castles like Qalat al Rabadh and Shobak; and Khirbat Qumran, site of the Essene settlement and of the Dead Sea Scrolls with whose discovery the author was intimately involved. The Antiquities of Jordan remains an invaluable and absorbing guide for students of Middle Eastern archaeology, as well as for those who know Jordan or who wish to visit the country., 271565, North America, 271566, Colonial, Independence 1501-1800, 271567, Civil War, American Indian Wars, Pioneers 1801-1900, 771766, Early 20th Century 1901-1913, 771768, Inter-war Period 1919-1938, 271570, Post-war Period, 1946-Present, 772168, War Of Independence, 771772, Korean War, 771770, Vietnam War, 771774, Gulf War, 10755401, American Civil War, 882506, Canada, 882508, Mexico, 772196, Native Americans, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271287, Middle East, 271298, Iran, 271299, Iraq, 271300, Israel, 271302, Lebanon, 271303, Palestine, 271305, Turkey, 271248, Asia, 771708, Countries & Regions, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
