In the rocky highlands of Jordan and the deserts of Saudi Arabia lie the remains of two remarkable city-states, Petra and Hegra, both built by the Nabataeans over 2,000 years ago. The story of their lost kingdom has faded from history, but thanks to ancient inscriptions and recent discoveries, these rock tombs and temples finally are disclosing profound secrets as to the Nabataeans' way of life. Join us as we enter these sacred sites, carved out of solid rock cliffs, and reveal a civilization where women wielded unrivaled power for centuries.
