Danish-German archaeological project in Jerash ‘unlocks new path to understanding the city’


AMMAN — Although the focus of the archaeological research conducted in Jerash has been centred on the main road, the Danish-German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project came with new findings in the last five years.

“This is because it is where the fantastic ruins of classical public buildings stand,” said Alex Peterson, an American PhD candidate in Archaeology at Aarhus University in Denmark.

The colonnaded streets and abundance of ruins mean that excavators will always find some interesting information, he continued, adding that “on the other hand, the northwest quarter is barren and littered with stones so, at first glance, it looks uninteresting”.
