So another new country for us. Today we are in Jordan. We just landed in Amman yesterday and this morning we are exploring the Ancient city of Jerash and now this is a Greco-Roman city so it belonged to the Greeks then it was converted by the Romans and the architecture was slighted changed so we're going to be showing you some of that.
Drums and Bagpipes.
So this is a Roman planned theater. When in use it could sit up to three thousand people and it was used for all kinds of performances.
We're now at the temple of Artemis the Goddess of the Sea.
So with the wall we were looking at just behind the olive press you can track the three different civilizations because at the very bottom you have the Greek blocks which were all different sizes and didn't really match. Then you can see the Roman style which were the big blocks of limestone and then at the very top there were smaller blocks which were placed by an Islamic culture.
This particular section was only uncovered in the 1970's. Prior to that it was underground.
Music playing in the background.
This is part of our Travel in Jordan series. We're making a series of videos showcasing Jordanian culture, Jordanian arts, Jordanian foods, Jordanian religion and Jordanian people.
