and SURVEY DATA
The Madaba Plains Project (MPP) has been involved in the archaeology of Jordan since 1968. MPP is currently conducting excavations at Tall al-'Umayri, Tall Hisban and Tall Jalul. Previous excavations were conducted at a number of small hinterland sites. In addition to these excavations, archaeological, environmental, and ethnographic surveys were carried out in the hinterland of each excavation site.
This page is meant to provide a convenient link to web publications on the archaeology of the Madaba Plain in Jordan and to survey data from the MPP hinterland surveys. The survey data section is new, and currently there is not much here, but there are links to GIS data for the 'Umayri survey and in the months to come, there will be additional data posted here.
