Abstract
Recent excavations in southern Jordan have revealed the largest Early Bronze Age (c. 3600-2000 BC) metal manufactory int he ancient Near East. On-site Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analyses of the finds provide new evidence concerning the scale and organization of metal production at a time when the first cities emerged in this part of the Near East. Materials nad lead isotope analyses of the metallurgical finds provide important data for reconstructing ancient metal processing and for identifying trade networks.
