Abstract

During the summer of 2011 nine students from Brockport traveled to Jordan and participated in an archaeological excavation at The Petra Garden and Pool Project, located in the heart of Petra. The excavations focused on a large pool with a central pavilion flanking a monumental colonnaded garden. During the field school we learned excavation techniques and had 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, we also lived in the local Bedouin Village and learned a great deal about their culture and way of life. This poster will present an overview of our excavation experiences as well as our observations and local interactions with the Bedouin people.
