Archeology of Jordan
The people of Petra, in what is today Jordan, controlled the incense trade from southern Arabia into ancient Greece and Rome. Excavations have brought to light many aspects of the culture and history of the region. Replicas of objects and specimens give insight into their everyday life, trade, religion and the cult of the dead.
The replica of a biclinium, or dining hall, of Nabataea shows the colourful architecture at the beginning of the first millennium.
Consider the wafer-thin tableware and the fine details on figures from antique Petra at the time Christ was born.
