AEMBT- Scientific Program

ACTECH is a 2-year research project led by Piero Gilento and supervised by Francois Villeneuve and Pierre Marie Blanc, at the University of Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne (France).

ACTECH has two main objectives. The first is to increase our knowledge of the built heritage in the Jordanian Hawrān between the 2nd and the 9th century AD. The second is to explore the channels of transmission for construction techniques and architectural typologies in the ancient Mediterranean. The project will use archaeological stratigraphy applied to the standing structures and the creation of architectural chrono-typologies.
