Abstract: The initial season of a three-season intensive survey of the area around Pella in Jordan was conducted in the autumn of 1994, concentrating on the north-east sector. In the 12 km² area covered, 192 sites of a wide range of periods were identified, varying in size and type from single cisterns to multi-period tells. Notable were the collection of (probably) Bronze Age built-tomb fields, fortified structures of the Hellenistic and Roman periods, the evidence for Roman-Byzantine agricultural activities, and the general patterns of settlement existing within the proximity of a major urban site. Soundings were made at one of the more elaborate Byzantine farmstead sites.
