Tall Zira’a

The Tall Zira’a forms the nexus af the Gadara region in the Wadi al’Arab (Jordan). Its 5000 year long settlement history has been studied since 2003 by the BAI Wuppertal in cooperation with the DEI Jerusalem and the DEI Amman.

As an excavation assistant on the Tall Zira’a-project, I was able to collected my first experiences in the Near East, and was introduced to digital photogrammetry methods and aerial photography using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
