Introduction

The seventh season of field work of the Ba‘ja Neolithic Project at the Late Pre-Pottery Neolithic site of Ba‘ja near Wadi Musa, southern Jordan, was carried out between March 25-April 19, 2007, under the directorship of Hans Georg K. Gebel (assistant director:Moritz Kinzel) in cooperation with the Department of Antiquities of Jordan, and under the auspices of ex oriente e.V. at Free University of Berlin. Information concerning earlier research at the site and additional references are provided in Gebel 2001a-b; 2004a-b; 2006; Gebel, Hermansen and Kinzel 2006; Gebel and Hermansen 2004; and Bienert and Gebel 2004.

Aside from the excavation and aims described below, in the seventh season backfilling with sifted material was carried out for rooms in Squares C10, C11, and C21. Based on the understanding as a community-embedded project, work was also devoted to various measures to help sustainable developments in the transformation of the local tribal environment, the continued documentation of its socio-economic changes (Jürgen Baumgarten), modest direct support of local individuals, and the joint preparation for a Neolithic Heritage Trail reaching from Wadi Araba to Basta (a cooperative effort of the Basta, Ba‘ja, Beidha, Ghwair, Shkârat Msaied, Wadi Faynan projects and the Department of Antiquities, Amman).
