006- Byzantine Period
Madaba’s Archaeological Park is a partially-roofed museum that displays structures and mosaics from the Roman, Byzantine, and Umayyad periods. The park was established after the excavation of the Byzantine Church of the Virgin, which led to the excavation of an adjacent Roman road, a Byzantine mansion (the Hippolytus Hall), and other structures.
The park is at the center of the city of Madaba, walking distance from the Church of St. George. Adjacent to the park is the Madaba School of Mosaics, which conserves and restores ancient mosaics.
