Site DescriptionThe Burnt Palace, so named by archaeologists who discovered a layer of ash over parts of the sixth-century structure, indicating a destruction by fire. From available remains, the palatial home to an elite family boasted two palace wings (east and west), separated by a stone-paved courtyard. Mosaics in the side wings capture in vivid fashion scenes from daily life in the region. It is located along what was originally a long Roman paved roadway, across the street from one of several contemporary Byzantine churches, the Martyrs Church.
Project DescriptionIn December 2020 CyArk provided a virtual workshop on 3D digital documentation of cultural heritage to two faculty members and one student at the American University of Madaba. Following the workshop the trainees documented three sites in Madaba using terrestrial photogrammetry over four days.
