Gerasa, a Decapolis city in northern Jordan, has long been of interest to the international community of archaeologists and ancient historians. The final publications of the Danish-German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project is the most comprehensive publication on the archaeology of the site, since the 1938 publication edited by C. H. Kraeling.

The Decapolis city of Jerash has long attracted attention from travellers and scholars, due both to the longevity of the site and the remarkable finds uncovered during successive phases of excavation that have taken place from 1902 onwards. Between 2011 and 2016, a Danish-German team, led by the universities of Aarhus and Münster, focused their attention on the Northwest Quarter of Jerash — the highest point within the walled city — and this volume is the third in a series of books presenting the team’s final results.

The contributions gathered together in this volume provide an in-depth analysis of the glass finds, the lamps, and the iconography of the Jerash bowls discovered in the Northwest Quarter during the excavations. Together, these chapters provide both general overviews and more detailed insights into these important groups of material evidence, and also examine their stratigraphic contextualization and chronological spread across the centuries.

Achim Lichtenberger and Rubina Raja are professors of classical archaeology and directors of the Danish-German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project. They specialise in the archaeology of the Mediterranean and Levant and have published widely on Gerasa and Levant.
