W.J. Bankes' Journey to Petra in 1818

Norman Lewis's meticulous transcription of this unpublished journal has been made available on this site together with photographs of each page of the original. There are also links to studies of W.J. Bankes and his considerable contribution to our knowledge of the ancient Near East and Egypt. A link between each page of the transcription and the photographs of the original will be made at a later date.
