Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The Nabataean period represents the flowering of a unique culture before it was conquered by Rome. It is conventionally dated from the fourth century B.C. to the Roman conquest in 106 A.D. The Nabataean Kingdom was located in an area between the great cultures of Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Phoenician lands. This book focuses on describing terracotta figurines in shapes of humans and animals found on the Nabataean sites in South Jordan and Palestine and provides a detailed catalogue with respect to their shape, ware, possible date, technique of production, meaning and function, to provide important information about the Nabataean culture.
