The excavations aim at training the students in on-the-field skills, in the areas of bioarchaeology, drawing, photography, and archaeological surveys, using the radar transmitting device for the surface layers of the earth, as well as documentation and analysis of skeletal remains, in an effort to understand the social life of the inhabitants of the region during the Roman and Byzantine periods, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The dean of the faculty, Hani Hayajneh, confirmed on Monday that these excavations, which the faculty has been carrying out since its inception, are a basis for the scientific research of the faculty members. The publication of such research reflects on the reputation of the faculty and university globally, according to Hayajneh, in addition to the fact that such fieldworks give students field and research skills that they could not obtain through theoretical study, he added.
