Next, we'll fly to the Middle East, backwards in time with FUNKFISH to the Ancient Future...Time to visit Petra (from "petra", rock in Greek; Arabic: Al-Butra), an archaeological site in Jordan, lying in a basin among the mountains which form the eastern flank of Wadi Araba, the large valley running from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. It is famous for having many stone structures carved into the rock. The long-hidden site was revealed to the Western world by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812. It was famously described as "a rose-red city half as old as time"... Pliny the Elder and other writers identify Petra as the capital of the Nabataeans, Aramaic-speaking Semites, and the centre of their caravan trade. Enclosed by towering rocks and watered by a perennial stream, Petra not only possessed the advantages of a fortress but controlled the main commercial routes which passed through it to Gaza in the west, to Bosra and Damascus in the north, to Aqaba and Leuce Come on the Red Sea, and across the desert to the Persian Gulf. Excavations have demonstrated that it was the ability of the Nabateans to control the water supply that led to the rise of the desert city, in effect creating an artificial oasis. Now, still flying back in time, northwestwards to the Anatolian Plateau... Centuries slip by, as we reach back 2800 years ago, for a superb TRIP to PHRYGIA . As you would expect on AMBIENT WORLDS, We will be flying First Class, with your outstanding crew, ANAKATA, from Athens, Greece... The Phrygian people settled in the area from c. 1200 BC, and established a kingdom in the 8th century BC. It was overwhelmed by Cimmerian invaders c. 690 BC, then briefly conquered by its neighbor Lydia, before it passed successively into the Persian Empire of Cyrus, the empire of Alexander and his successors, was taken by the king of Pergamon, and eventually became part of the Roman Empire. The Phrygian language survived until about the 6th century AD. ESCAPE POD 2 to ITL central: Seeking Permission to transfer from Ancient to Future Mode...
