Our project base is in Madaba, a city of c. 80,000 (c. 1/3 Christian and 2/3 Muslim) 15 miles north of Dhiban with good tourist infrastructure, including restaurants, hotels, banks and a wide range of shops. Free WiFi is available in a number of cafes and internet USB dongles can be purchased in Madaba for your laptop or smartphone. Team members will sleep 3-4 per room in gender segregated apartments that have electricity, running water, showers and western-style toilets. Water is in short supply in Jordan, so all team members are expected to conserve water at all times. Breakfast is provided on site and a large lunch will be prepared each weekday by our (excellent) cook. Evening and week-end meals are less structured, with students free to eat food available in the project kitchen or purchase their own food in Madaba. Meals will be provided during field trips where appropriate. We can accommodate vegetarian diets as a matter of course. More strict dietary restrictions (vegan, kosher, allergies, lactose or gluten intolerance, etc.) are more difficult to accommodate and will need to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Dr. Routledge by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any such dietary restrictions.
