A large part of Jordan is covered by deserts (like the Wadi Rum). Jordan has seen numerous civilizations, including the Nabatean civilization which left rich archaeological remains at Petra. The Nabateans constructed it as their capital city around 100 BC. The site remained unknown until 1812, when it was rediscovered by Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.
