The Archaeology and Epigraphy of Jordan’s North-Eastern Desert
In this conference scholars working on the archaeology and epigraphy of Jordan’s North-Eastern desert and beyond are brought together in order to explain the prominent achievements of the indigenous peoples through the ages and to develop new, comparative perspectives on desert cultural landscapes.
Guiding themes are: regional perspectives and diversity, chronology, population dynamics, transitions, habitation and burial practices, local identities, mobility and landscape, ecology and environment, connectivity, social and ideological strategies, the meaning of literacy, marginality and periphery, the role of rock art, and the constitution and meanings of local material culture.
