Abstract: Between 3 and 6 November 2018 our team conducted an archaeological survey at Dajaniya, Ma’an-Husseiniyeh district, Southern Jordan. The primary goal of the work was to document the architectural remains and to verify dating of the site. Documentation work was completed using laser scanning and close-range photogrammetry. In order to verify the dating, a surface prospection was carried out. Additionally, a virtual tour of the site was created using a spherical camera.
