Area F and the southern basalt outcrop Gallery

Area F is located on an large basalt outcrop extending in the southern outskirt of the mound of Taşlı Geçit. As confirmed by aerial remote sensing, the numerous surface basalt stones represent the remains of numerous buildings. The structure had been severely damaged and eroded by the seasonal flooding of the Tahtaköprü dam. Therefore, in order to document the last visible evidence and to provide a precise chronology of the area, in 2009 we opened a test area. The excavation revealed part of a large building probably dating to the LB I.
