Excavations in Progress - Turkey

Reports of Excavations that have been taking place recently in Turkey. Many of these sites have openings for volunteer fieldworkers.

Not all of these references are completely up to date, although many of these excavations have been going on for several years. I shall be checking to see if we have the latest information.

  Gobekli Tepe: 12,000 Years Old and Rewriting Human History
“This time what came first was the temple and then the city.” - Klaus Schmidt, Ph.D., German Archaeological Institute

  The Secret of Gobekli Tepe: Part 1
Göbeklitepe is an ancient and significant site which has been pushing back the beginnings of civilization further than we previously assumed. As each temple at the Neolithic site is excavated, the story of human history is rewritten.

  The Secret of Gobekli Tepe: Part 2
Sun and moon iconography can be found on the impressive standing pillars of Göbeklitepe, the Neolithic temples that are among the most important archaeological sites of our time. Guest author Özgür Etli examines what messages the ancient builders might have been trying to impart to the people who used the temples, and what they might have also been trying to communicate to all of humanity. .

  'Byzantine iPad' Found in Ancient Shipwreck
Turkish archaeologists excavating a harbor site on the European side of the Bosphorus have unearthed a 1,200-year-old wooden object which they claim is the ancient equivalent of a tablet computer. The device was a notebook and tool — in one. The Byzantine invention was found within the remains of one of the 37 ships unearthed in the Yenikapi area of Istanbul, a site which has been at the center of excavations for the past 10 years.
