the scourge of the bulldozer in Jordan

I have just been to an interesting lecture by Professor David Kennedy who has been coming to Jordan for 30 years and is an aerial archaeologist. He has been taking photos of Jordan since 1997 which are the first since an earlier survey in the 1950s.

What is so scary is the rapid speed of the degradation of our antique sites. The bulldozers move in and flatten sites without any restriction or comeback.

Jordan is the only Middle Eastern country that has allowed this remarkable access from the air and Professor Kennedy and Dr Bewley have produced a wonderful book titled 'Ancient Jordan from the Air'. T
