The 2020 Study Season

Gygaia Projects

The Kaymakçı Archaeological Project fit in a study season during the height of COVID-19 in 2020. We arrived with masks on and, after a period of quarantine, enjoyed the benefits of a small research group sealed off from the outside world. The season was spent well on processing of archaeobotanical and ceramic samples, re-inventorying and reorganizing zooarchaeological collections, and consulting GIS and excavation databases concerning ongoing analyses of fortification architecture and evidence for metallurgical activities at Kaymakçı. Additionally there was a lot of publication and conference preparation (see what came out… in the following posts!).

Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
