Description

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a country with a rich history. An important part of its history is its tribes and the caves they used as dwellings. Dr. Øystein LaBianca’s 1989 cave survey is an ethnographic study of the caves in Jordan, done by means of interviews and visual observations. I endeavor to organize this data in four ways: transcribing LaBianca’s field notes and relevant sections of Frederick G. Peake’s History and Tribes of Jordan (1958), finding the location of each interview on Google Earth, locating and uploading photos from each interview, and using NVivo for qualitative data analysis.
