abstract
The main objectives concerning the Aqaba castle chronological sequence of occupation of the site and to provide a structural interpretation of the layout of both the standing remains and the underlying structures. This case-study will be framed within the results of a wider survey and study of the surviving ca√ćavanserais in Jordan, the majority of which I have already undertaken. The combination of these studies will result in the first diachronic description and analysis of the origin and development of the Khans in Jordan.
