On to Madaba where there is a historically important mosaic that covers the floor of a Greek Orthodox church. It is a map of the holy land constructed in AD560 and once contained more than 2 million pieces! Quite a bit of it still survives after being unearthed in 1864.
Footnote: Um er-Rasas (Kastrom Mefa'a) is UNESCO World Heritage listed.
