9.00 p.m. |HISTC| Lost Treasures of Petra
The "red-rose" city of Petra stands as one of the most glorious and
mysterious archaeological sites on earth. Created over 2500 years
ago, the ornate Petra cityscape was literally carved into the rose-
colored walls of Jordan's Shara Mountains. The builders of Petra -
the Nabataeans -- were thought to be some of the wealthiest people
ever to inhabit the Middle East, but they - along with their riches -
vanished. Just what was Petra? Could the Arabian site be still hiding
precious treasure? Like the heroic character Indiana Jones, he rides
horseback through Petra's winding 'Siq', examines Petra's only
surviving parchment manuscript, and goes underneath the ancient
'Treasury' in search of hidden riches.
