Abstract: Archeology can become an important factor in the development of tourism and improving the economic situation and standards of people living in southern Jordan. As a part of the HLC Project, analyzes and surveys were made to answer the question of whether the local population treats the development of archaeological works as a threat or a positive chance. The goal of the project is not only to carry out research work but also to return the heritage of the inhabitants of the south of Jordan to their use and protect it in the optimal way.
