Ancient Jordan from the Air

This is the marvellous book showing pictures of Jordan from the air. You just never know what is there from the ground but the treasures that appear when looking from the air are amazing. The picture below shows First World War trenches near the railway station at Ma'an (taken September 2002). Hopefully they are still there!

Ancient Jordan from the Air by David Kennedy and Robert Bewley (ISBN 0-9539102-2-9). If it cannot be found in a bookshop it is certainly available at the Council for British Research in Levant (CBRL) in Tila'al Ali tel no 5341317. All the photos that David and Bob take are available to look at at the Department of Antiquities and the CBRL. T
