Evidence

"This valley led us up onto a little Col from whence we looked down into the beautiful Wady Sir [Wadi es Sir] with Arak [Iraq] el Emir lying in the bottom of it and heights thinly covered with oak behind. Now this place is very interesting. It was a palace built by an enterprising gentleman called Hyrcanus about 200 years before Christ and Josephus describes it so accurately that one can to this day trace the lines of the moats and tanks and gardens."

Notes
It is not clear from the evidence whether Gertrude Bell read and re-read Josephus, either ""The Jewish War"" or ""Antiquities of the Jews"" or the ""Complete Works"" in Jerusalem and again on site in Jordan (hence the speculative date rage submitted). Her known reading habits to date point to at least a preparatory reading before important journeys, and this was her first archaeological expedition.
