Ammon News - The Thoughtful Archeology in the Ecosphere and Sociosphere - the 15th International Conference on the History and Archeology of Jordan - will kick off on the Yarmouk University (YU) campus from August 2 to 5.

The conference, organized by the YU and the Department of Antiquities, will tackle 13 scientific topics that cover all aspects implied in the conference's title, said a joint statement issued Sunday by YU, the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, and the department.

Over 166 research papers will be presented by scientists, researchers, and academics during the conference, and multiple workshops will be held on the sidelines.

There will be 294 participants in total, 120 from Jordan, 8 from Arab countries (Egypt, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and the Emirates), and 166 from other countries, including Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Japan, Holland, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

This global gathering, first held in the 1980s in Oxford, UK, as a Prince Hassan bin Talal initiative, is regarded as a major international event that allows researchers to present a summary of their scientific output on Jordan and the Levant's history and archeology.

The conference, which is held every three years, gives scholars the chance to converse and share knowledge while also highlighting Jordan's history on a national, regional, and global scale.

Over the last decade, countries such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, and Italy have competed to host the event alternately with Jordan.
