Abstract

Report on the 1996-1997 excavation seasons by the University of Sydney at the major site of Pella in Jordan. The Report covers work on the main mound with a focus on Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age levels, and the Roman/Late Antique Civic Complex area to the east. Of importance is the presentation of material from the Late Bronze Age/Iron Age Fortress Temple. The ceramics, animal bones and botanical data are presented and discussed, in addition to small finds, some of which are Egyptian in origin.
