Chapter Summary

Following the final Iron Age II occupation of Tall Jawa (Stratum VII), the site was abandoned and there followed a long gap in occupation. In a 5.0 km radius from Tall al-'Umayri, the Regional Survey by the Madaba Plains Project demonstrated that the heaviest settlement concentration in the Balqā region occurred during late Roman-Byzantine times Evidence for occupation during the Umayyad period shows a decrease in the survey data from central Jordan, although recent excavations have added to the number of known sites where occupation continued. Multi-level houses dating to the Roman and Byzantine periods were well known in Jerusalem, due to its topogragphy. With the exception of certain long-lived lamp forms and plain ware jugs, specific chronological indicators that suggest Abbasid period occupation appear to be absent from the Tall Jawa ceramic repertoire.
