A three week season of field survey of the Jarash Hinterland was carried out between 6 September and 25 September 2008. The 2008 season is the second season of a project covering an intended area of 10 sq km centred on the Roman City of Gerasa.

The 2008 survey area consists of the largely developed hillside to the N and NW of the Roman city in Zhara as Siraw, beside the Suf road; the northern Wadi Jarash or Wadi Deir as far as Birketein; the developed hillsides to the E of the main N-S road Route 15 (old Irbid Road) that divides the ancient city in two and N of the new Irbid road that runs E-W along the S side of the city, focussed on the land outside the Roman city wall; and the southern Wadi Jarash. The 2008 survey area covered a total area of 1.9 sq km and recorded 402 sites. The survey area has now encircled the ancient city and the total area surveyed in 2005 and 2008 covers 2.5 sq km and has recorded 625 sites.
