Saving Petra

Thursday, October 31, 2013

Reporter: Tara Brown
Producer: Stephen Taylor

Tucked away in a hidden valley in Jordan is one of the wonders of the world.

Carved into a mountainside, Petra has survived for two and a half thousand years.

Its popularity soared off the back of the Indiana Jones movies but now the "Rose City" has become too popular for its own good and archaeologists fear it will be lost forever.

Luckily, there's a Jordanian Princess who's making it her life's work to save Petra.
