The projects covered by AIJ 2 (2018 and 2019 seasons) ask and address exciting questions, test new approaches, and re-evaluate research priorities. Of particular interest is an increasing engagement of local communities with restoration and presentation processes in order to achieve both their own economic sustainability and preservation of their cultural heritage. Community engagement is especially represented by the restoration of the Matan Heritage Village, the CBRAER program in Wadi Rum, Umm el-Jimal, and the development of the new archaeological museum in Madaba.
