group will be taken on a city tour of Amman before driving out into
the Eastern Jordan Desert to see the Roman, Medieval and Islamic castles
and forts of Amra, Qasr Kha-ranah, Qasr Al-Hallabat.
students of Religion the visit to Mount Nebo will have an interest as

Jerusalem. You will have the opportunity to explore the cavernous underground
halls and dungeons as well as visiting the museum associated with this
some, the highlight of the trip will be the full day visit to Petra
- The Lost City of the Nabateans. There is something for every interest
and most subjects. Petra is located in a geological fault that forms
part of the Great Rift Valley that extends down into Africa. The historical
interest is clear, but study the massive edifices carved from the solid
rock and consider the technology used to achieve such wonders. This
location of this city is a cleft in the mountain of an arid desert,
yet the ever rescoureful Nabeteans developed a water system that delivered
fresh water to their city through a series of pipes and gutters - the
technology of which has not been improved on even today. An English
or Drama student would be fascinated and inspired by this location that
formed one of the backdrops for the Indiana Jones Film - The Last Crusade.
lover of adventure will certainly enjoy the 4x4 drive in Wadi Rum -
the backyard of the British Liaison Officer - Laurance of Arabia. Included
in this trip is a visit to Laurance's house and Wadi Um Ishrin where
you can find Nabatean Inscriptions. The wind erroded sandstone sculptures
of Wadi Rum are an inspiration to artists and provide some dramatic
shapes and curves with which to practise their skills.
contrast to the Dead Sea, the Red Sea is teeming with underwater wildlife.
The warm waters of this sea at Aqaba make it the ideal place for bathing,
boating and snorkelling, or just taking it easy on the beach. The holiday
adventurer can even take part in water skiing, diving or sailing. The
Red Sea provides some of the best areas in the Northern Hemisphere to
see marine life in its unspoilt environment. You can take part in Scuba
Diving, Snorkelling or just enjoy the incredible beauty as you gaze
in wonder from a glass bottomed boat. There are a variety of optional
day tours which you can take part in depending upon your taste.
