Movie Reviews

Interesting and informative
Mrs. Cheryl A. Bullock | Australia | 01/10/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The program does examine well who these people were, why Petra was so successful, and what happened to it. It does so in a very entertaining way and is well worth seeing. My only reservation is that there could have been more detail about the people's way of life and what the remains of Petra actually represented. It is a little unclear about what were tombs and what were not and what the actual layout of the site was.I realise of course that there is still a lot of work going on at the site."
This is very historical.

"This DVD is all about the history behind Petra. I was hoping to see more photos or video of what is there. I left with mixed emotions because I now know more, but wished to see more actual photos."
