Within the city walls have been found the remains of settlements dating from the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad and Abbasid periods, indicating human occupation at this location for more than 2,500 years.A local English Speaking Guide will be included for 2 hours in Jerash. The guides are provided by the Authority of Jerash under the Ministry of Tourism.
