Description : The Tall Zira'a (or: Tell Zera'a) (Arabic: تلّ زَرعة‎) is an archaeological tell in Jordan. Surveys and geophysical investigations showed the site's great potential for excavations. Tall Zira´a contains evidence of over 5000 years of settlement – almost without cultural gaps, at the point at which the Syrian cultural sphere meets the Palestinian. Its almost continuous stratigraphy from Early Bronze Age to the Islamic periods can possibly demonstrate the history of northeast Jordan.
