Ammon News - The Thoughtful Archeology in the Ecosphere and Sociosphere, the 15th International Conference on the History and Archeology of Jordan, will kick off tomorrow at the Yarmouk University (YU) campus and continue until August 5th, with participants from across the world.

The conference, organized by the YU and the Department of Antiquities, will tackle 13 scientific topics that cover aspects related to archeological research, applied sciences, reports of excavations and archeological surveys, and prehistoric and antiquity periods from Alexander the Great until the Islamic conquest, said a joint statement issued Monday by YU and the department.

A total of 294 people will take part in the conference; 120 of whom are from Jordan, 8 from Arab countries (Egypt, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and the UAE), and 166 people are 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 in the United Kingdom, as a HRH Prince Al 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.
