The Dhiban Excavation and Development Project (DEDP) investigates the archaeology, environment, and history of Dhiban, a Middle Eastern town located today in west-central Jordan. Dhiban has been settled intermittently over the past five millennia and is today the largest town on the Dhiban Plateau.

Started in 2004, the DEDP is a collaborative project involving scholars from Europe, the Middle East, and North America.

This website is a gateway to information about Dhiban’s history and archaeology, the project’s research findings, and recent news and announcements.
