Petra | Beidha

Beidha was an obvious site to choose; it occupied naturally defended ground, plentifully supplied with water from the Beidha valley. Today one can still see the remains of walls of the early houses of these newly settled farmers, with their internal hearths and plastered floors, the site, which clearly shows devising different housing patterns, regarded by archaeologists as being as important as the ancient remains of Jericho.
