Celebrating 50 Years in Jordan: ACOR's Past, Present and Future


This year, the Amman-based American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) is celebrating 50 years as a research center in Jordan.
Founded in Amman in 1968 as a gathering of archaeologists "in a small flat, with a handful of books," ACOR is now a leading center of research on Jordan and the surrounding area, with a particular focus on archaeology and cultural heritage.

The Center has been marking the anniversary through a series of lectures, videos, and written reflections, including a public presentation by Dr. Barbara Porter, ACOR Director, in Amman last month.
