"The fourth volume of the Madaba Plains Project series entitled Madaba Plains Project 'Umayri 4: The 1992 Season at Tall al-'Umayri and Subsequent Studies. ... This volume is dedicated to His Royal Highness Prince El-Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan whose long-standing support of archaeology in Jordan has earned both admiration and deep respect. The field reports examine the Iron II/Persian Administrative Complex (Ch. 3), Western Defense System (Ch. 4), the Lower Southern Terrace (Ch. 5) and the Eastern Shelf (Ch. 6). These include stratigraphic information, section drawings and pottery plates. Detailed photographs and line drawings make the identification of the excavation phases clear. The pottery discussion compares the 'Umayri ceramics with other similar forms from MB II to Late Iron II/Persian found elsewhere in the Levant. The variety of objects found at 'Umayri show the diversity of human activity throughout the periods represented. These objects are presented in the preliminary report, along with other articles on the clay figurines, the reexamination of Cylinder Seal No. 3021 and two unique inscriptions." AU Press catalogue
