Gadara Region Project and Tall Zira'a Excavation

In northern Jordan close to the border with Israel the Gadara Region Project researches the lower part of Wadi al'Arab. An ancient trade road leads from Egypt through Palestine and Syria to Mesopotamia. The main settlement site in the Wadi al'Arab was Tall Zira'a.

An artesian spring on the hill's surface always offered favourable living conditions. The Tall is witness to more then 5000 years' history. Layer by layer it elucidates astonishing details about human life and folklore through five thousand years of history.
