The team members live in a Bedouin tent on the mountain plateau during the field seasons.
The electricity is produced by solar cells - there is plenty of sunshine! The electricity is needed for the batteries of measurement and camera equipment, computers etc. Cellular phones and e-mail was used to be in touch with Petra, Amman and Helsinki.
Lunch break at half past one in the afternoon ends the daily work at the excavation site.
Shower and toilet tents were specially designed for the project. Water has to be rationed as all of it is transported from Petra in jerry cans and carried up by donkeys. 
After siesta it is time to wash and sort the pottery found during the day's work.
After the evening meal at sunset we retire to fill-in our notebooks and to write e-mails and diaries.
