Ruins in the center of Amman.

A few weeks ago Ian, Rebecca and I went on a little tour in the center of the city. Roman ruins anyone?

History at our fingertips, all over the city.  At the entrance to the amphitheater hawkers were selling piles of Roman (and other?) coins dug up around the city.  Every time a building basement is dug, every time land is leveled for new construction (which doesn't happen often, I admit... homes are built into the side of the hills) there is the opportunity to uncover real ancient history.

It's pretty awesome.
