Turkey

Turkey has always held a special place in the life of the Institute of Archaeology. Over the years, many Institute staff and students have worked on archaeological projects in Turkey, ranging in date from Palaeolithic to Islamic and everything in between. The world-famous Neolithic site of Catalhoyuk was originally excavated by James Mellaart, a Professor at the Institute from 1964-91, and is now excavated by Ian Hodder of Stanford University as an Institute project with participation by many UCL staff and students. A pioneering multi-period survey of north-central Turkey, ancient Paphlagonia, was recently conducted by Roger Matthews, who served as Director of the British Institute at Ankara 1995-2001. The Institute has Socrates-Erasmus links with several universities in Turkey and regularly hosts visiting students and staff from our Turkish partners.
