UNDER THE GRACIOUS ROYAL PATRONAGE OF
HIS MAJESTY KING ABDULLAH II BIN AL HUSSEIN OF JORDAN
Dead Sea – Jordan
January 14-18, 2013
On behalf of the Organising Committee of the Seventh World Archaeological Congress it is a great pleasure to invite colleagues from across the globe to come to the Dead Sea, Jordan from 14th-18th January 2013.
The palatial King Hussein Convention Center at the Dead Sea will be the main venue for WAC-7. The Dead Sea is the lowest and saltiest location on earth, and offers visitors health tourism and relaxation combined with history.
Jordan is currently celebrating 200 years since the rediscovery of the World Heritage site of Petra. WAC-7’s brilliant scientific program will be complemented by an opportunity to experience the Kingdom of Jordan’s rich cultural life as well as its outstanding archaeological heritage. This cultural heritage includes four sites on the World Heritage list, and another fifteen nominations.
WAC Congresses are truly extraordinary. By providing support for 200-300 people from low income countries, students and Indigenous groups, WAC Congresses create a unique opportunity for the sharing of knowledge from around the world. Each Congress is a unique event that is embedded in the culture of the host country.
