    Project: Research

    Project Description

    This project will provide new understandings of how Natufian hunter-gatherers founded the earliest villages in the Jordan Valley around 12,500 BC. New analytical technologies will be used to evaluate the degree of
    sedentism at Wadi Hammeh 27 and investigate the social links binding this settlement to smaller Natufian seasonal sites.
