Brown University Petra Archaeological Project

Brown University Petra Archaeological Project, Jordan
Susan E. Alcock, director

BUPAP is designed to develop our understanding of the diachronic history of Petra in southern Jordan and its surrounding landscapes. The current project includes an intensive survey in Petra’s hinterland to the north, geophysical exploration, limited excavation and mapping in the city center and in the survey region, and documentation of the various routes that led in and out of the city.
