This site presents the ongoing research of the JVRP with regular updates and reports on the progress of our excavation programs and active research projects. The site is also a repository for the primary archaeological, historical, and other archival data on the valley.
Our goals for this site are as follows:
1. Presentation of our active archaeological, historical, and environmental studies.
2. Repository for the raw data produced by these projects.
3. Collection and presentation of all historical data relating to the valley.
4. Comprehensive dataset for use by our project collaborators and the public.
This dataset is continually updated as we excavate, discover, and process material from the valley. We are striving for a complete documentation of published and unpublished material. Please feel free to use the comment feature on most pages to point out gaps in our data, provide useful information, or ask questions.
