For five hundred years Petra was forgotten by the outside world, a fiercely guarded secret known only to the local tribe’s people. However a gentleman named Burckhardt, a ninetieth century adventurer tricked his way in by posing as an Indian who wanted to make a sacrifice at the tomb of a prophet.
Today Petra is renowned worldwide and protected as a World Heritage Site, yet it is under threat. Time is taking its toll as the red sandstone used to build the city is soft and crumbling and Petra is in danger of being worn away.
The Petra National Trust has called upon your students to put signs up to help tourists behave in a way to help preserve site. They need to design three signs for this project, but first need to consider the site they are meant for and how the signs should look.
