Tall Zira'a

The Tall Zira'a is one of the most promising talls of Palestine. Surveys and geophysical investigations showed the site’s great potential for excavations. Presumably, an almost continuous stratigraphy from Early Bronze Age to the Islamic periods will demonstrate the history of northeast Jordan.
