The Jebel Qurma Archaeological Landscape Project is designed as a multi-disciplinary, multi-period regional research project in Jordan’s northeastern desert, comprising both survey and excavation. The project comprises extensive yearly fieldwork, with the campaigns each lasting for about 10 weeks. The first field campaign was completed between May and June 2012. The second season of survey in the region took place from May till early July 2013. Excavation and soundings at selected sites within the study area are foreseen for the near future.
