Exploring the archaeological wonders of Jordan

In Jordan's extraordinary rose-red "Lost City" of Petra, I have just huffed up 700 zigzagging stone-carved steps to the ancient mountaintop High Place of Sacrifice with its sacred altar and goat blood drain. And now, along a dirt trail, I rest in a rug-draped souvenir stall while an octogenarian Bedouin woman – who is traditionally clad in a long embroidered madraga dress and grew up in a cave – deftly strings a fragrant necklace of dried cloves to sell me.
