The Nabataean Palace Structures at Umm elBiyarah,Petra
Prof. Bienkowski will talk about the latest results from his on-going excavations on the famous mountain of Umm elBiyarah in Petra, which are sponsored by the PEF. Umm al-Biyarah has long known to be an Edomite centre, but is now also revealing extraordinary palatial remains from the Nabataean period. The photo is courtesy of Piotr Bienkowski. This lecture follows on from the Fund's AGM, which might cause a delay in starting.
