The Madaba Plains Project studies the cultures that over time inhabited the highland plateau of Jordan located between the cities of Madaba and Amman. Tall Hisban, Tall al-’Umayri and Tall Jalul are three archaeological sites currently being excavated by the Madaba Plains Project, a research endeavor which began in 1968 at Hisban.
