This first appendix to "Terra Petraea. The Archaeological Landscape of the Petraean Hinterland from the Hellenistic to the Byzantine Period" (ISBN 978-3-8325-5171-1) constitutes this study`s site catalogue and lists all archaeological sites recorded by the various surveys (cf. chapter 2) within the study area.
The Excel file has numerous columns with relevant spatial and archaeological information. The column ‘Object_ID’ is only relevant for sorting the data in a GIS. ‘Site_Name’ gives the abbreviation of the original survey with original survey numbers. ‘Site_Name_Other’ gives the local site name, if provided.
These are then followed by coordinate information in a UTM 36N system. The quality of the spatial information (‘Localization’) is assessed. The term ‘precise’ states that the coordinate information has an accuracy of c. 3 m or better. The column ‘Original_Site_Type’ lists the original designation of the relevant site by the original survey. This is then followed by the categorization of each site according to this study’s site classification system (‘Type of Archaeological Evidence’ and ‘Type of Archaeological Evidence_Subcategory’).
The following columns give the dating values ‘0,’ ‘0,5’ and ‘1’ (cf. chapter 2) of each recorded site by cultural periods as well as on a century basis.
The dating quality is assessed in the column ‘Dating_Quality.’ Basic bibliographical references to each site is given in the column ‘Literature.’ Finally, some comments may be given for individual sites.
