Written and organized in honor of renowned Leiden archaeologist Gerrit van der Kooij, A Timeless Vale presents a wealth of research on the prehistory and history of the Jordan Valley. Chronologically and thematically diverse, the chapters cover a range of topics, including the history of the Zerqa Triangle, the paleoecology of the Hula area, an analysis of the Jordan Valley during the early Bronze Age, a description of sugar production in Jericho during the Ayyubid and Mamluk periods, and an overview of Dutch archaeological activity in Jordan during the last fifty years.
