A chapter of the digital monograph: Site Presentation

Early printed materials

Companion Folder


     Before the thorough re-organization of the site presentation program in 2008, we used to make available at the site two distinct sets of printed material – a 40 page booklet that was given to visitors free of charge, and a 58 page companion folder with color illustrations that the guard would lend the visitors to use while following the itinerary.
     Both were posted on the public website for personal downloads as desired. We keep these postings available, even though they are now dated and have primarily an historical interest.

      There is an English (3MB) and an Arabic (1.5MB) version, both of them in .PDF format.
