This volume of essays, in honour of Professor Michèle Daviau, focuses on the archaeology of the area of central Transjordan known in antiquity as Moab. The range is wide, covering social organisation (the polycentric nature of social order, tribalism and segmentary society), studies of the environment and settlements in Iron Age Moab, Moabite pottery production, the concept of sacred space in ancient Moab, studies of particular sites and objects, and a survey of bioarchaeology in Transjordan. It includes papers dealing explicitly with material from Daviau's own projects in the Wadi ath-Thamad and Khirbat al-Mudayna, and some which extend their focus to include Moab's neighbours and a wider chronological span. The international contributors comprise the leading authorities on the archaeology of Moab, and the volume as a whole offers an up-to-date picture of the state of archaeological research on ancient Moab.
