I’ve been working to understand the ancient landscape and people of Lycia (southwest Turkey) since 1997. Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), I’ve worked on two projects in upland ‘nothern’ Lycia: the Hacımusalar Project in the Elmalı Basin and the Çaltılar Archaeological Project in the Seki Basin. Located here are reports and links about those projects.

  • The Hacımusalar Project Regional Survey: landscape and settlement investigations in the Elmalı Basin,” a PDF report accompanying a poster presented at the IIIrd International Symposium on Lycia in Antalya, Turkey; 7-10 November 2005. This paper was submitted for the publication of the conference proceedings, but was not included due to a misunderstanding between the Turkish and American project directors. Document date: 9 January 2006. Document illustrations:
    • Figure 1: General map of the Elmalı Basin
    • Figure 2: Intensive survey sample and principal sites
    • Figure 3: Details of major surveyed sites and their periods of occupation
