We explore, study, and preserve historical and cultural resources at Khirbat Ataruz and its Vicinity.
We excavate Khirbat Ataruz, an ancient site that encloses one of the most magnificent Iron Age temples in the region of Levant, Middle East, one dated to about 3,000 years old. The research team also studies, surveys, and documents invaluable archaeological, historical, and cultural remains in some of Jordan’s greatest landscapes such as the Dhiban Plateau, the Wadi Mujib, and the Jabal Hamidah. For decades, these areas have been threatened by random, increased, and relentless housing development, road construction, and industrial expansion. We aim to study, discover, preserve, and protect historical and cultural resources of Khirbat Ataruz and these regions from improper development. But these goals cannot be accomplished by us alone.
