The UCL Archaeology Collections (المجموعات الأثرية في كلية لندن الجامعية)

The UCL Archaeology Collections catalogue allows the search of the Institute of Archaeology holdings as keywords, and in advanced and expert search. The catalogue lists 504 objects from sites in Jordan: Roman and Nabataen finds from Petra, Neolithic finds from Jerash, EBA vessels from Khirbet Ader, but mostly Chalcolitic finds from Teleilat Ghassul, and Iron Age II objects from Tawilan. The collection originally included objects from Hausa, Kilwa, El Barsa, Mashshashar, Um er Raqaba, but these were transferred to the British Museum Collection in the 1980s. None of the entries for Jordan in the catalogue has pictures, but the online catalogue is currently being updated.
