In October 2014 in the city of Madaba, Jordan, also known as the city of the mosaics, another training project - led by the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage in collaboration with Department of Antiquities of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan -

was held in the city's Archaeological Park, and the field work has been carried out

on the remnants of a building known today as the Burnt Palace,

part of an imposing Byzantine complex which

  dates back to the turn of the 7th century.

The palace stands on one of the last remnants of a Roman street,

a grand promenade flanked by columns running from

east to west through the city, leading to

the gates in city walls that

have long since

vanished.
