The earliest evidence of settlement in the area is a Neolithic site known as 'Ain Ghazal.
Its successor was known as "Rabbath Ammon", which was the capital of the Ammonites, then as "Philadelphia", and finally as Amman.
Its houses were rectangular mud-bricked buildings that included a main square living room, whose walls were made up of lime plaster.
The site was discovered in 1974 as construction workers were working on a road crossing the area.
By 1982 when the excavations started, around 600 meters (2,000 feet) of road ran through the site.
Despite the damage brought by urban expansion, the remains of 'Ain Ghazal provided wealthy information.
The city is among the most popular locations in the Arab world for multinational corporations to set up their regional offices, alongside Doha and only behind Dubai.
It is expected that in the next 10 years these three cities will capture the largest share of multinational corporation activity in the region.
Amman derives its name from the 13th century BC when the Ammonites named it "Rabbath Ammon", with the term Rabbath meaning the "Capital" or the "King's Quarters".
