Project ID 534PAL4001

Tell es-Sultan/ Ancient Jericho is one of the oldest occupied towns in the world, dating to 10,000 BP as evidenced by the stratigraphy of archaeological excavations. It houses the earliest fortification system, with well-preserved Neolithic monuments that point to the early development of a sophisticated social and political system. Despite the exceptional significant value of the site, it is facing serious challenges related to its conservation and management due to the lack of systematic conservation strategy. Palestine is planning to nominate the site for potential World Heritage inscription. Therefore, it requires special interventions to unearth its significance to the public.
