|Title:||Changing Patterns of Settlement and Land Use in the Hinterland of Pella (Jordan) in Late Antiquity||Contributor(s):||Watson, P (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1006||Abstract:||The urban site of Pella in Jordan (modern Tabaqat Fahl) is located in the eastern foothills of the north Jordan Valley (Figure 1). It has been occupied almost continuously from Neolithic times through to the modern era. Over thousands of years the site has fluctuated in size and importance, suffering occasional periods of abandonment. Extensive excavations of the 'city' have been undertaken since the1960s, revealing the sequence and complexity of this enduring occupation. 1 However the setting that nurtured such a centre had only received sporadic attention. Examination of the context of such a site is needed to widen our perspective on urbanprocesses and link them with the socio-economic and demographic systems operating within the general cultural landscape. 2||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Settlements and Demography in the Near East in Late Antiquity, Matera, 27-29 October, 2005||Conference Details:||Settlements and Demography in the Near East in Late Antiquity, Matera, 27-29 October, 2005||Source of Publication:||Settlements and Demography in the Near East in Late Antiquity: Proceedings of the Colloquium, Matera, p. 171-191||Publisher:||Istituti Editoriali e Poligrafici Internazionali||Place of Publication:||Pisa||Field of Research (FOR):||210105 Archaeology of Europe, the Mediterranean and the Levant||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://digital.casalini.it/8881474514||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 258
