This intriguing 1-hour "Time Scanners" documentary takes a high-tech look at the ancient city of Petra (aka. "The Lost City of Stone") that is truly an architectural wonder.

Situated in the remote desert region of Jordan (which is close to Israel) - This UNESCO World Heritage site is estimated to have been built around 9000 BC.

Believe me - This presentation, showcasing this fascinating archaeological discovery, is sure to be of keen interest to a wide-range of viewers.

Fascinating look into the lost city of Petra and how modern technology is being utilized to explore the ruins. As Arkansans, my kids (age 10-4 years) also enjoyed several experts from the U of Arkansas onsite in Jordan assisting with the exploration. Archeology seemed more within reach to them as a potential field.
