The Tell Madaba Archaeological Project

http://www.utoronto.ca/tmap

Introduction

The Tell Madaba Archaeological Project (TMAP) is a multidisciplinary research project investigating the early development of urbanism and urban institutions in the ancient Near East. It is part of an ongoing international research effort to create a regional database that will permit comprehensive analysis of the adaptive strategies and social institutions developed by human communities in the semi-arid Highlands of central Jordan, a geographical area distinguished by its climatic variability and environmental diversity.

The site is situated within the modern city of Madaba, located 30 km southwest of Amman amidst the fertile plains of the Central Jordanian Plateau, forming a continuous urban tradition that can be traced back in time at least 5,000 years. The ancient settlement consists of a large low-lying tell and acropolis (approximately 16 ha in area at the base and 9 ha at the summit). Surrounding the tell, but primarily to the north, are the remains of the classical town, represented most notably by the churches and mosaic pavements which have brought Madaba such fame.

Documentary sources, including the Bible, the Mesha Inscription, and a wealth of later classical sources, attest to Madaba's prominent role in the long and eventful history of this region. TMAP has been funded by research grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC), the National Geographic Society, the American Schools of Oriental Research, and the Connaught Fund of the University of Toronto.

Umm el-Jimal

http://www.ummeljimal.org

Umm el-Jimal is both a modern town and archaeological site of unknown name, located about 70km northeast of Amman and just south of the Syrian border. In ancient times the site was occupied from roughly the 1st to 8th centuries CE. After its decline Umm el-Jimal’s dark basalt architecture lay silent for a thousand years, until the Druze and then others reoccupied it at the start of the 20th century. Umm el-Jimal was a frontier town in the desert, likely first inhabited by Nabataean traders caravanning between Petra and Damascus. With the arrival of Rome in the second century CE the village eventually became part of the Limes Arabicus—the line of garrisoned forts that protected Roman Arabia. Even so Umm el-Jimal’s inhabitants existed in relative autonomy, and by the 5th and 6th centuries it peaked as a prosperous Byzantine town of perhaps five thousand souls. Over the following centuries Umm el-Jimal’s residents remodeled and reused its stone structures, until its probable decline and gradual abandonment in the late 8th century. Today archaeological and other research continue to piece together Umm el-Jimal’s fascinating story of everyday ancient life. Although located on the semi-arid plain of the Hauran, its residents devised an ingenious water storage system. Canals and reservoirs collected runoff from kilometers away, enough to sustain thousands of people, their animals, and agriculture. Umm el-Jimal is also home to a unique architecture. Ancient denizens used abundant black basalt from the region’s volcanic plain to construct sturdy, cool structures reaching up to six stories skyward. Techniques such as corbelling allowed most buildings to contain multiple floors, while cantilevered stairways provided access. Built in, ground-floor mangers provided for family livestock. On the edge of empires, for hundreds of years Umm el-Jimal’s citizens successfully created a thriving home.

Tell Mozan, ancient Urkesh

http://www.urkesh.org

Urkesh, today a small village known as Tell Mozan, was a major political and religious center of the Hurrians – an elusive population of the ancient Near East.
Our excavations have shown that they had developed a strong urban civilization, at the very dawn of history, some 6000 years ago.
A temple dominated the ancient skyline, at the top of a built-up terrace that rivaled the nearby mountains.
A large royal palace, currently under excavation, has yielded written evidence that has allowed us to identify the ancient city.

The Lois Dowdle Cobb Museum of Archaeology

http://www.cobb.msstate.edu/Museum.html

The Lois Dowdle Cobb Museum of Archaeology serves to complement the research mission of the Cobb Institute by providing exhibits and related opportunities for outreach education for the university community and the general public. Its gallery principally displays artifacts related to the Native American cultures of the Southeastern United States and the civilizations of the ancient Middle East and Mediterranean regions. The most recent exhibits have featured materials from the Institute’s major on-going field projects. These include displays of artifacts from excavations at Lyon’s Bluff, a 14-15th century A.D. Mississippian period settlement site in Oktibbeha County, MS; and from work at Tell Halif in southern Israel where late 8th century B.C. Israelite period household remains were found.
