Short Report on the 1999 Season

by Hans Georg K. Gebel and Bo Dahl Hermansen

 

 
Short Report on the 1999 Season

Next Season

During our next season in coming April/ May [2000] we plan to concentrate on the following questions:

  • Excavation of the lower stratigraphy in Area D: Will we find evidence for the earliest settlement history in this upslope situation that differs from the latest occupation?
  • Will we find in Area D the burials suggested by the human remains and ornaments found in a sediment trap in the gorge below?
  • More exposure of architecture: Will the structures give evidence for buildings that served other than domestic functions?
  • Soundings in Area B ("The Saddle"): Will we find here the expected communal space of the settlement?
  • How were the extreme parts of the Ba'ja slopes used? Can we identify more traces of architecture that slid down the slopes ?
  • Investigations of the southern gorge's topography: can we find evidence to test our hypothesis on water storage by damming the gorge?
  • Can we locate a "second" Ba'ja in the Petra area? .
