Item description for Jordan: Past and Present: Petra, Jerash, Amman by E. Borgia...
Jordan: Past and Present will be of particular interest to Western readers, who rarely have the opportunity to visit the ancient monuments of Petra, Jerash, and Amman. The archaeological history of the Kingdom of Jordan and of each of the three principal Jordanian sites are carefully and clearly explained, and then each of the monuments-among them the Theater, Nymphaeum, Temenos Gate, and funerary monuments in Petra; the Arch of Hadrian, Sanctuary of Artemis, South Theater in Jerash; and the Temple of Hercules in Amman-are pictured as they exist today with overlays showing how they likely looked when still intact.

I got this book, AFTER I visited these places and I'm glad I did. Very effective way of comparing what one can see nowadays and what it must have been like in its time. Useful before travelling, after or even if only interested in finding out more about the region. Perfect size book and very easy to consult. A friend saw my copy and immediately ordered one for herself. It is that interesting. Recommend highly
