Madaba Plains Project 5
The 1994 Season at Tall al-'Umayri
by Larry G. Herr, Douglas Clark, Lawrence T. Geraty, Øystein S. LaBianca and Randall W. Younker
$ 79.99

The volume is dedicated to Prince Raad Zeid Hussein. It includes contributions by David R. Berge, Joan W. Chase, Douglas R. Clark, Buguslav Dabrowski, Angela von den Driesch, Elzbieta Dubis, Jürg Eggler, Larry G. Herr, Chang-Ho Ji, John I. Lawlor, Nadja Poellath, Joris Peters, Elizabeth E. Pratt, and Lloyd A. Willis.

The field reports examine the Ammonite Administrative Complex (North) (Ch. 3), Western Defense System (Ch. 4), and the Southwest Acropolis (Ch. 5). These include stratigraphic information, section drawings and pottery plates. Detailed photographs and line drawings make the identification of the excavation phases clear. The pottery discussion compares the 'Umayri ceramics with other similar forms from MB II to Late Iron II/Persian found elsewhere in the Levant. Burial practices are discussed including the Dolman, Middle Bronze Age IIC Tomb as well as the wider detailed examination of the human bones. The variety of objects found at 'Umayri show the diversity of human activity throughout the periods represented. These objects are presented in the preliminary report, along with other articles on the metal objects, the inscribed seals and seal impressions. Other studies include an examination of subsistence at the tall during the Bronze Age and tribes and sedentarization of the region. Also included are 138 figures, 76 tables, 2 maps, 46 pottery plates, 425 seal illustrations and index.
