Some stories from the history of Jordan


King Abdullah the First declaring the independance of Jordan

This is the History of Jordan section
You can continue your visit of the website by using the navigation bar on the left

This doesn't attempt to be a coherent history of Jordan. It is simply a collection of pages about subjects I find interesting and think other people might too. Coherent histories are easy to find in most of the guide books, and there are many long periods when nothing much at all happened in Jordan!

To continue to the other sections please use the navigation bar on the left. This is only a general summary, and for a full list of the material available in each section, it is necessary to consult the section index, given in capital letters on the navigation bar or from links on each page.

 

Comments and suggestions

I owe a big BIG thank you to Nadim al Twal who has designed the new look for "Jordan Jubilee". He is a very successful graphic designer who was kind enough to take the time to do this for us all. If anybody wants to get in touch with him with a new commission I shall be more than happy to pass on your message!

I hope that you will send me an email if you have any comments on this site, and especially if you find any gaps or false information. Any suggestions about anything at all are welcome, although I don't promise to act on them. I should also be interested in any "feedback" - comments (favourable or otherwise) on people or places I have mentioned in these pages. My email address is jordanjubilee@yahoo.com
