This exhibition celebrates the University of Michigan's long involvement in the recovery of the material culture of Byzantium, by highlighting the University's collections of artifacts and the University's participation in the expeditions mounted to document and retrieve those artifacts.

Çatalhöyük:
This Web site is designed for those interested in the ongoing excavations at Çatalhöyük, a Neolithic Anatolian Tell. Its aim is to provide information about the activities of the Project and of the different aspects of the research being conducted at Çatalhöyük.


Coastal Cultures of the Turkish Aegean
Madra Cay Delta, Turkey What cultural interaction did people in Anatolian coastal settlements here have with their neighbors across the Lesbos Strait on the Aegean island of Lesbos? How did geographic changes, such as coastline movements and sea-level fluctuations, impact the string of cultures that have occupied this region, from unnamed Neolithic and Bronze Age peoples, through Hellenistic and Roman societies, to the Ottoman Empire and beyond? At this picturesque crossroads between East and West, Drs. Nigel Spencer and Kyriacos Lambrianides will continue trying to paint an epic picture of natural and human change over the past few millennia.

Kinet Hoyuk - Dortyol, Antakya Excavations :
Kinet Hoyuk, eastern Cilicia's largest mound, is located ca. 30 km north of Iskenderun in the Turkish Hatay, and 500 m inland from the Mediterranean coast. The site has long been identified by scholars with the classical port of Issos, in the plain where Alexander the Great defeated Darius III in 333 B.C. Earlier, Kinet may have been the Phoenician harbor Sissu, and in Hittite times Zise. A Bilkent University project began here with a regional survey in 1991, and preliminary soundings on the Kinet mound in 1992, in cooperation with the Hatay Museum. Full excavation seasons were conducted in 1993-1997, and a study season in 1996. The project is directed by Marie-Henriette Gates.

Melbourne North Eastern Turkey Project:
The University of Melbourne North Eastern Turkey Project commenced in 1988 and has continued each summer under the direction of Dr Antonio Sagona. The first task undertaken by the team involved extensive field survey of the Bayburt plain, which lies in the rugged highland region of North East Anatolia (map 1). Excavations were then carried out at Boyuktepe Hoyuk, a site which lies near the village of Ciftetas in the Bayburt province, in 1990, 1991 and 1992. 1994 saw the first season of excavations in Erzurum province at the site of Sos Hoyuk in the modern village of Yigittasi. The preliminary reports of the excavations are published in Anatolian Studies, Journal of the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara.

Pinarbasi Excavations, near Çatalhöyük in central Turkey:
Assessment excavations were begun in August 1994 on two early prehistoric sites at Pinarbasi, near Çatalhöyük in central Turkey. These are salvage excavations, which are being undertaken jointly by the Department of Archaeology, University of Edinburgh and the Karaman Museum, in whose province the site lies. The research is part of the Çatalhöyük Research Project.


Rescue Excavation at Ciftlik (Sinop), Turkey
The first sign that something was wrong was when fragments of the mosaic floor of an Early Byzantine church began appearing
on the shores of the Black Sea's Sinop Bay near Ciftlik in Turkey. The sea is eroding the cliffs on top of which the church was
originally built, so the entire site is on the verge of being washed away. Some parts of the ancient city of Sinope are already
under as much as 4 metres of water.

Watchful Stones
The kingdom of Commagene was a small buffer state between the massive Roman Empire and the
powerful kingdom of Persia that ruled for 234 years until 72 AD. Antiochus I, its most famous king, built
a tumulus and sanctuary on Mount Nemrud, the highest point of his land, adding statues of both the gods
and himself.
