Archived Articles

I've found over the course of time that just because someone has an article available on their Web site today doesn't mean it will still be available tomorrow. Here are some great articles about Petra from various magazines and sources. Some of these are still available on the magazines' Web sites; some have been deleted by those magazines but have been rescued and are now available here for posterity! Check these out in chronological order... you'll learn a lot about Petra's history.
