1st Nabataean Studies

The First Conference on Nabataean Studies (21-23 June 1999)

This conference produced a qualitative shift in the study and research of Jordanian antiquity and general history, with a particular focus on the Nabataeans. It is considered the first of its kind in terms of the subject matter, as well as in terms of its contribution to the impression of archaeology and the heritage of Petra in science and the press. The conference is seen as breaking new ground in Jordan regarding quality and quantity.
