History of Jordan

Jordan occupies an area rich in archaeological remains and religious traditions. The Jordanian desert was home to hunters from the¬†Early Paleolithic¬†Period; their flint tools have been found widely distributed throughout the region. In the southeastern part of the¬†country, at¬†Mount Al-ŠĻ¨ubayq,¬†rock carvings¬†date from several prehistoric periods, the earliest of which have been attributed to the Paleolithic-Mesolithic era. The site at¬†TulaylńĀt al-GhassŇęl in the¬†Jordan Valley¬†of a well-built village with painted plaster walls may represent transitional developments from the¬†Neolithic¬†to the Chalcolithic period.

The¬†Early Bronze Age¬†(c. 3000‚Äď2100¬†BCE) is marked by deposits at the base of¬†DhńębńĀn. Although many sites have been found in the northern portion of the country, few have been excavated, and little evidence of settlement in this period is found south of Al-Shabak. The region‚Äôs early Bronze Age¬†culture¬†was terminated by a nomadic invasion that destroyed the principal towns and villages, marking the end of a peaceful period of development. Security was not reestablished until the Egyptians arrived after 1580¬†BCE. It was once believed that the area was unoccupied from 1900 to 1300¬†BCE, but a systematic archaeological survey has shown that the country had a settled population throughout the period. This was confirmed by the discovery of a small temple at¬†Amman¬†with Egyptian, Mycenaean, and Cypriot-imported objects. (2)
