        Ancient Building Techniques | Petra

        Learn about ancient building techniques at the Nabatean city of Petra in this clip from Time Scanners. A structure called the "Unfinished Tomb" shows how Nabatean stone masons cut a platform at the top of the stone and carved the facades from the top down. At Petra's Monastery, Lidar scans help prove a building engineer's theory about how the Nabatean stone masons would have carved the Monestery façade.
