Recent excavations in a dormant volcanic desert of Jordan found out three Shockingly advanced forts with artificially irrigated plantations. These sites date back to the period Before Christ, about 6000 years ago. The remains of the settlements were discovered in the hills at the edge of the dormant volcanic desert of North-eastern Jordan, which lies very close to the Syrian border.

Reports after radiocarbon dating reveal that these fortresses existed about 4000 to 3500 BCE. This is an era that existed a 100 years before even the pyramids were constructed. The discovery came as a major surprise as nothing of this advanced technology had yet been discovered yet in the inhospitable depths of the desert of Jordan. The Jordan desert was as inhospitable as it was a primitive society.

the discovery of these 3 fortresses with heavily fortified walls and irrigation facilities under the scratchy sun of the dry desert of Jordan and the houses built with stone in the Khirbet abu al-Husayn, Khirbet al-Jambalaya and Tulul al-Husayn are enough to prove that the Jordanians were a developed society that had settled in the eastern desert around the 5th to 4th century BCE.

However, the origins of the settlements till remain a mystery as the three newly excavated forts are still under study. The walls of these forts, though show signs of damage and conflict. there are also evidence of them being rebuilt over different periods of time, which goes on to show the regular in fighting between the societies.
