Petra North Ridge Project: The 2014 Season (Article)
Title: Petra North Ridge Project: The 2014 Season
Author: Megan A. Perry
Author: S. Thomas Parker
Abstract: The second season of renewed excavations on the Petra North Ridge continued to recover evidence about the non-elite population of Petra through excavation of shaft tombs and of domestic structures. The six excavated tombs have yielded much artifactual and human skeletal evidence about mortuary practices and the health of of the city's population prior to the Roman annexation of A.D. 106. Several excavated domestic complexes illuminated social and economic life in the city both before and after the annexation. Excavation also continued on two segments of Petra's city wall, further supporting a construction date around the turn of the 2nd century A.D.
