Reviews - What do customers think about The Natufian Encampment at Beidha: Excavations at Beidha (Jutland Archaeological Society Publications, 23)?

Excellent Research!  Feb 13, 2003
Beidha is an ancient Natufian encampment just outside of Petra, Jordan. I visited the site in 2000, and though it was not much more to look at than a bunch of carefully placed stones, it turns out that what I saw was a small village as old as Jericho dating back some 10,000 years!

To cultural geographers, archeologists, anthropologists, and those of us with an "Indiana Jones" spirit about us, this book is very thoughtful and informative. It is complete with tables, graphs, photographs, and illustrations of everything from the stone tools used, to the stratigraphy of the environs at the site.

The book is written in 7 chapters, 2 of which are a friendly introduction and a conclusion). I found the second chapter especially interesting as it reconstructs the paleoenvironmental conditions of the area at the time of its occupancy. What is perhaps most incredible is the chance that a primitive type of agriculture may have been employed at a time when agriculture was relatively non-existent.

Today the site, indeed, the entire region around Beidha is a desert with minimal life... but when in its prime the area was wrought with a Mediterranean forest that produced acorns, pistachios, wheat and barley.

A great book for those seeking the details of a little-known place in the Levant!
