Acknowledgments

The field work was made possible through the excavation permit granted by the Department of Antiquities, Amman. We gratefully acknowledge the additional support of its director – general during his visit, H.E. Dr. Ghazi Bisheh, without which the successful fieldwork would have been less efficient.

With deep appreciation we thank our excavation team for the splendid work and good spirits under the very hard conditions: Christian Hartl-Reiter and Ute Koprivc (topographical surveyors); Bernd Müller-Neuhof (archaeological surveyor); Tobias Kramer (sedimentologist), Jan Timm (architect); Stephan Fengler and Nina Hoffgen (photographers); Philip Rassmann (registrar); Abd al-Nassar Hussein al-Hindawi, Benjamin Jeffs, Muhammad Fadel Khatatbeh, Christiane Meckseper, Sandra Schatz-Härle (square supervisors); Salaheddin al-Abbasi, Annalisa Alvrus, Ulrika Andersson, Jessica Anderson, Brian Conn, and Lena Gebel (assistant square supervisors). In the latter third the project was joined by Reinder Neef, German Archaeological Institute - Eurasien-Abt. (palaeobotanical samplings). Considerable support came also from part-time participants: Patrick Kloiber (topographical surveyor), Johannes Meier and Julia Littmann (dig assistants), and Sonja Striegl (reporter). During the final works we received the well appreaciated help of Bo Dahl Hermansen and Ghattas Sayej. Logistic support was received from the following individuals: Eid Nawafleh and Wendy Botham (Petra Moon Tourism Services), Helge Fischer (CARCIP), and Manfred Lindner, Nürnberg.

Principal funding for the 1997 season was received from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Bonn), the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, Orient- Abteilung (Berlin), the Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland (EKD), and ex oriente e.V, at Free University of Berlin. In addition, financial and materials support for the project came from: Dr.Dr. Manfred Lindner, Nürnberg; Foto Wegert, Berlin; Konica Deutschland; and Agfa-Gevaert AG, Leverkusen.
