In a visually stunning presentation, Professor Paradise discusses thirty years of research in the magical ruined city of Petra, Jordan. Coming from a diverse background in geology, materials conservation, climatology, and architecture, Paradise addresses his work in the Valley of Petra since 1990, discussing the melding of the geosciences, cultural heritage management, history, architecture, and politics that have driven his research. From understanding deterioration of 2,000-year-old sandstone structures, the effects of tourism at this UNESCO site, to new findings on architectural alignments to the sun, many answers to haunting questions regarding Petra will be examined.

This lecture is sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America.
