Instructor: Dr. Stephen Phillips, Curatorial Research Coordinator, Egyptian Section, Penn Museum
In this course we will first orient to Jordan and Petra itself, both ancient and modern. We will then experience a first-hand virtual tour of Petra’s major monuments. Finally, Dr. Steve takes us with him inside an archaeological excavation at Petra’s “Temple of the Winged Lions,” where he served as an Area Supervisor. Is archaeology at all like Indiana Jones?
