I travelled to Jordan last summer for the Bir Madhkur archaeological excavation in Wadi Araba. While I was there I took a lot of pictures, with the intention of assembling them into a 3D model using Microsoft’s free webapp Photosynth, which I first discovered via the extremely useful AnthSpace@PSU blog written by Nathan M.

Check out Qusayr Amra:

And the Basilica of St. Theodore (I think) at Jarash:

You can find all of my photosynths here:
