Photographer's Note

Jordan 2008

We are arranging an international exhibition in Florence "From Petra to Shawbak. Archaeology of a frontier".
This pic comes from the photograpic campaign of the last May, in the LAPIDARIUM of Shawbak castle. The photograper was taking some photos of trebuchet bombs: big stone balls for a besiege medieval machine.
These bullets witness the besiege of the Crusader castle of Shawbak by Salāh al-Dīn in 1189.
