Sacred Sites of the World – Petra

About the Work

In the rocky highlands of Jordan and the deserts of Saudi Arabia lie the remains of two remarkable cities, Petra and Hegra, built by the Nabataeans over 2,000 years ago. The story of this lost kingdom has faded from history, but thanks to ancient inscriptions and recent discoveries, these rock tombs and temples are finally yielding profound secrets about the Nabataeans’ way of life. Join us as we enter Sacred Sites carved from cliffs and reveal a civilization where women wielded unrivaled power for centuries.

Giles Packham has written a beautiful evocative score twisting and turning with all the beautiful images on sreen. The programmme premieres on the Smithsonian Network on 12th September.
