The Year 2001 Season of Excavation at Late PPNB Ba'ja

Introduction

A fourth season of excavation was carried out between Sept. 11 and Oct. 112001 at LPPNB Ba'ja, north of Wadi Musa, southern Jordan, under the directorship of both authors. The team consisted of 20 members from seven countries; up to 22 local workmen were employed.

The already difficult conditions and logistics of excavations at Ba'ja were worsened this year by a considerably more difficult site access, caused by partial deepening of the gorge's bed. Torrential rains in winter and early May had reduced its gravel fill by as much as 2-3m at spots (e.g. Fig. 1), which resulted in more exhausting climbing and transport for maintaining the excavation infrastructure (for reports on the previous seasons cf. the bibliography).
