Archaeology in Jordan


Henry O. Thompson

Archaeology has been growing in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as an academic subject in the schools, as an Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology at the new Yarmouk University, as the on going publishing and digging and preservation efforts of the Jordanian Department of Antiquities, now 70 years old, as growing numbers of foreign expeditions dig into Jordanian soil. The essays and reports in this volume share the experience and finds of several excavation and study efforts carried out with the Jordanian Department personnel who contribute to these studies.
Contents: Archaeology in Jordan reports on the towers of the Ammonites, the excavation of Tell Siran and studies of its artifacts, and special archaeological features of the Levant.
