Photographer's Note

More than the colorful backdrop of Jordanian flags, the megalithic structures in the fg of the Jordan Museum (not to be confused with the National Archaeological Museum of Jordan on the Citadel) caught my eye here. They reminded me of the houses in Bedrock, the fictitious town in the Flintstones cartoons, with Fred & Wilma & date from 3600-3000 BC. The old bg train wagon, the mosque and the city hugging the hillside added further interesting layers.

The dolmens depicted here have been re-sited to the museum grounds from the Damiyah dolmen field.
