"Petra, the ancient city of the,
Nabetaeans, in Trans Jordan is
situated along a dry river bed in
the greatest mountain area within
hundreds of miles," stated Mis~s
Agnes Ethel Conway, of Cambridge,
England in her university lecture
given yesterday afternoon in Na-
tural Science auditorium under
the auspices of the local A. A. U.
"The main entrance to the city is
by a narrow path between two high
cliffs. The crack through which
this entrance runs ends suddenly
and the great facade of the royal
tomb of Dushara, the local god of
the Nabataens, confronts one upon
entering. It is of a striking archi-'
tecture, common to these ancient:
peoples, and is carved out of the
deep red sandstones of 'the area."
continued Miss Conway, while
speaking on "Fi'ft Exc'vations 'in
"Bounded on three sides by
rather high peaks, the Nabataeans
constructed a '-geat Wall on the
fourth side to protect their city.
It was the custom of these peoples1
to dump their rubbish just over,
this city wall;" said the speaker,
"and it was in these, rubbish piles
that we found manyperfect speci-
mens of well shaped pottery. This
pottery was of too fine workman-
ship to have been made by Arabs
and so it is that we are puzzled asI
to the identity of these mysterious
Nabataeans who were at one timeI
strong enough to be a menace to
Rome. Trajan captured Petra inl
106 A.D. and it became the capital
of the southernmost province of
the great Roman Empire."
In telling of Petra itself Miss1
Conway explained the wonders ,of
the many great facades which were,
peculiarly carved from the top
downwards. Gigantic rooms of1
great heights are carved out of the

'the building is particularly advan-
tageous in that it is not more than
six minutes' walk from the cam-
