welcome to FOAH official website 

FoAH was founded in 1958 by a group of Jordanian and non-Jordanian archaeologists and residents who wanted to expand awareness and enjoyment of Jordan's rich heritage among the general public.
FoAH has had a permanent office since 1992, which is used both for administrative work and as a venue for public lectures. It is administered by a voluntary Board of Directors.

The Friends of Archaeology and Heritage promote greater understanding of archaeology and the importance of preservation and conservation of our national heritage by introducing members and guests to various issues related to archaeology and heritage. This is achieved by organizing field trips to archaeological and cultural sites inside and outside Jordan, in addition to hosting lectures related to this sector in both Arabic and English, presented by professors and experts in these fields. FoAH continues to advocate for the protection of cultural resources by acting as a “monitor” in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the Department of Antiquities.
