4 Ornamental Carved Stones in Ancient Jerash, Jordan

An unusual feature at Jerash compared to most archeological sites is the presence of hundreds of broken carved building stones and columns scattered across the 160 acres of the ancient city. Most of them are lined up as if pieces of a huge jigsaw puzzle awaiting assembly. This site was first explored by teams of British and American archeologists starting in 1925. It is now managed by the Jordanian Department of Antiquities (DOA).
