    As Crisler points out in his review of Rohl, Petra does not have remains to suit Kadesh:

    Petra, however, was not settled until about the fourth century B.C. In terms of its archaeology, it has indicia from the Upper Paleolithic, Neolithic, Iron Age (Edomite ware), and from Hellenistic and later times.20
