The Eastern Jafr Joint Archaeological Project (EJP) is a survey and sounding project aimed to understand the role of desert adaptations in one of Jordan's most most ill-known regions. Here, in these hyper-arid areas, climatic changes would be reflected in the most sensitive ways by human presence. While recording all data and evidence of human life in the area, the project of focuses on the “green desert” periods of the area, on the northern extension of the Kilwa cultures of Jabal at-Tubaiq, and prepares palaeontological research in the area.
