THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ARCHAEOLOGY has a new article on archaeology in Jordan in 2002. Here's the abstract:

Archaeology in Jordan, 2002 Season

Stephen H. Savage, Kurt Zamora, and Donald R. Keller

The 10th season of excavations at the Petra Great Temple took place between 15 June and 3 August 2002. The Great Temple precinct is located in the center of Petra on the south side, fronting the Petra basin and the Colonnaded Street, a few meters east of the Temenos Gate of Qasr al-Bint. Most of the temple precinct has been excavated; however, certain areas, such as the propylaeum, and specific projects lying to the east and south of the temple, remain to be researched.

The whole article is available as a PDF file on the same page, but the file takes up 9.9 megabytes, so I'm going to hold off downloading it myself until I can use the broadband connection in my office. I guess it must have lots of pretty pictures.
