Le sanctuaire du Qasr al-Bint et ses abords : un état des lieux des travaux de la mission archéologique française à Pétra, Jordanie (1999-2013)

Abstract : This article presents an overview of the work of the French Archaeological Mission to Petra between 1999 and 2013 in the area surrounding the temple traditionally known as the Qasr al-Bint. These studies have allowed to reconstruct the development of what appears to have been the original core of the town’s occupation, located in the basin of the Wadi Musa, as well as the heart of its religious life, over nearly a millennium, from the earliest occupation in the area in the late 4th/early 3rd cent. bc until its abandonment in the 5th cent. ad. A complex, previous to the temple (Building C), and the infrastructure associated with the Qasr al-Bint (propylaea, peribolos, altars, amonument of imperial propaganda, Building B) are presented in detail. This report, based on the archaeological and chronological data firmly established by the excavations, aims to establish the general phases and the functional development of the area, thereby contributing a better understanding of the history of the sanctuary
