Sarah Wenner, a Ph.D. Candidate in Classical Archaeology, recently accompanied the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Curator of South Asian Art, Islamic Art, and Antiquities, Ainsley Cameron,  on a research trip to Jordan funded through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The museum, which houses the largest collection of Nabataean material outside of Jordan, has embarked on a multi-year project to reinstall their Ancient Middle East collections. The research trip included visits to Madaba, Petra, the Dead Sea, and Amman, as well as meetings with staff from the Jordanian Department of Antiquities, The Petra Museum, and The Jordan Museum. The group also climbed Khirtbet et-Tannur, a Nabataean temple excavated by Cincinnati-native Nelson Glueck, where they documented the current state of the temple.
