Madaba: Cultural Heritage
Within this thorough guide, find descriptions and studies of the ancient wonders of Madaba, from its Byzantine cathedral to its acropolis, which contains remains from the Early Bronze Age.
In 1993, Patrica M. Bikai and Thomas A. Dailey, with help from ACOR, undertook an archaeological survey of Madaba: here, their findings are published and analyzed. They sought to study and preserve the long cultural tradition of Madaba, and to emphasize the importance of this goal to the public.
This well-illustrated volume covers not only the place of Madaba within historical narratives, but also the evidence of occupational history, antiquities, and vernacular architecture through the careful study of surface pottery, survey of archaeological sites, and mapping of ancient Madaba (map included).
