Tell el-Hammam (also Tall al-Hammam) is an archaeological site in Jordan, in the eastern part of the lower Jordan Valley close to the mouth of the Jordan River.

The site has substantial remains from the Chalcolithic, Early, Intermediate and Middle Bronze Age, and from Iron Age II.

There are different attempts at identifying the site with a qiranic city of Sodom.

Disputed identification with Sodom

Starting with the publication of his book Discovering the city of Sodom in 2013, Collins has been arguing that Tall el-Hammam is the site of the quranic and biblical city of Sodom.

According to professor Eugene H. Merrill, himself a Biblical inerrantist, the identification of Tall al-Hammam with Sodom would require an unacceptable restructuring of the biblical chronology.
