Abstract

This paper explores the movement of ancient site locations across this diverse landscape from the Chalcolithic through the Umayyad periods, against the backdrop of climate and climate change. Though ancient settlement decisions were made on the basis of numerous and often complex factors (environmental and socio-political), this investigation found a definite correlation between climatic conditions and site location decisions, with one exception : the Nabatean Period
