Abstract: In November 2018, an archaeological survey was conducted at Tuwaneh (aka at-Tuwāna), Tafila-Hesa district. The main goal of the research was to develop a site plan, to document the architectural remains and looting pits and, lastly, to verify the hitherto established chronology of the site. The documentation was made using laser scanning and closerange photogrammetry and covered mainly the caravanserai complex and its vicinity. Additionally, in order to verify the chronology, a surface prospection was performed.
