The fourth volume of the Madaba Plains Project series entitled Madaba Plains Project 'Umayri 4: The 1992 Season at Tall al-'Umayri and Subsequent Studies. It is edited by Larry G. Herr, Douglas R. Clark, Lawrence T. Geraty, Øystein S. LaBianca, Randall W. Younker and includes contributions by Douglas R. Clark, Buguslav Dabrowski, Malgorzata Daszkiewicz, Timothy P. Harrison, Larry G. Herr, Jacek Jelitto, John I. Lawlor, Russanne D. Low and Elizabeth E. Pratt. This volume is dedicated to His Royal Highness Prince El-Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan whose long-standing support of archaeology in Jordan has earned both admiration and deep respect.

The field reports examine the Iron II/Persian Administrative Complex (Ch. 3), Western Defense System (Ch. 4), the Lower Southern Terrace (Ch. 5) and the Eastern Shelf (Ch. 6).

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. 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 clay figurines, the reexamination of Cylinder Seal No. 3021 and two unique inscriptions. Also included are 50 figures, 85 plates, 22 tables, 2 maps, 30 pottery plates and index.

About the Madaba Series

The Madaba Plains region in central Jordan is located in the highlands to the east of the Dead Sea’s northern end. It is a broad plain on the central Transjordanian plateau near the modern city of Madaba. The Madaba Plains Project series reports on seasonal findings from the excavations at Tall al-’Umayri and vicinity conducted by a consortium of colleges and universities principally sponsored by Andrews University. In its field reports and descriptions of the various seasons, this series provides analyses of such aspects as the food and water systems, sedentarization, nomadization, ancient environment, and ceramic and small finds. Among their many figures and illustrations, these volumes include photos, maps, pottery plates, and section drawings. Editors for the series include Douglas R. Clark, Lawrence T. Geraty, Larry G. Herr, Øystein S. LaBianca, and Randall W. Younker.
