Troglodyte dwelling in Beidha. Beidha, also known as Small Petra, is a major Neolithic archaeological site a few kilometres north of Petra near Siq al-Barid in Jordan. There is a small canyon with many Nabatean graves and triclinium. It was first excavated by Diana Kirkbride in 1957 and later by Brian Byrd. There were 3 periods of occupation detected; the Natufian period in the 11th millennium BC, a Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) village with masonry construction in the 7th millennium BC, and a Nabatean period dating to the 1st or 2nd century BC.
