Dr. Steve's Presentation on Adventures in the Deserts of Jordan
Inside Recent Excavations at Tor Faraj

at the Upper Merion Township Library

         Monday, July 9 at 7:00 pm

Upper Merion Township Library's Freedom Hall

For all ages

    This lecture takes us deep into the desert of southwest Jordan, to a rock shelter site known locally as Tor Faraj. Portions of the third Indiana Jones movie were filmed in Jordan. This talk will take you deep behind the scenes of life on an actual dig, illustrated by numerous unpublished photographs taken by Dr. Steve

       Presenter Dr. Stephen Phillips is the Curatorial Research Coordinator in the Egyptian Section of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.  Dr. Phillips has traveled extensively and participated in a wide range of archaeological excavations for nearly 25 years, including excavations at Petra, Jordan; near Bordeaux in southwestern France; and in Egypt - at the Great Pyramids. He is also a professional guide for tour groups to Egypt.
