Johann Ludwig Burckhardt (1784-1817) was a Swiss traveler, geographer, and orientalist. He wrote his letters in French and signed Louis. He is best known for rediscovering the ruins of the ancient Nabataean city of Petra in Jordan. As Europeans were generally unwelcome and considered infidels, he often traveled and wrote under a different name, and was eventually buried with that name in Cairo.
