Assessment and quantification of damage on the building materials from three desert castles in Jordan

Research project conducted by Dr Marta Tenconi, Hashemite University, Jordan
The aim of this research project is to assess and quantify the damage observed on the building materials of three desert castles in Jordan. These castles are made with different building materials and they are adorned with wall paintings and mosaics. The study will extend to evaluate all the internal and external factors leading to the decay of these sites. The main scope is to produce a comprehensive plan for the conservation and management of these sites, which will take into consideration all the active decay mechanisms. The research thus will not only provide solutions for the necessary practical remedial and preventive practices for preservation of the monuments, but it will also be a conceptual management plan for the sites.
