American Center of Oriental Research


    The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) promotes research and publication across disciplines with a special emphasis on archaeology in the region. ACOR’s main activities include archaeological excavation and restoration projects, a fellowship program for scholars, hosting public lectures, and other academic programs. ACOR has one of the best libraries for archaeology and Middle Eastern studies in Jordan, and also offers hostel accommodations for fellows, researchers and other interested parties. They hope this blog can better highlight some of their projects and accomplishments, serve as a space for dialogue on archaeology and research in Jordan, and highlight some of their talented staff. ACOR is a member of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC), a federation of private, not-for-profit independent research centers across the globe. ACOR is a private, non-profit organization supported by contributions from foundations, corporations and individuals and funds generated by the Amman operation. ACOR is tax exempt as an American 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are often needed and always welcome!
