The Archaeology of Anatolia: Recent Discoveries
This volume brings together the latest reports on archaeological projects, including excavations and surveys, from all periods and every region of Anatolia. It is a forum in which scholars are able to present their most recent data to a global audience, allowing for productive engagement with others working in and near Anatolia regarding discoveries and interpretations. The series also offers a venue for publications on recently concluded projects to provide an overview of results, often years ahead of the final publication of complete site reports. Published every two years, The Archaeology of Anatolia: Recent Discoveries series represents an invaluable vehicle through which practicing archaeologists are able to carry out their most important task: the presentation of their fieldwork and laboratory research in a timely fashion.

"For archaeologists with interests in the eastern Mediterranean and the ancient Near East, publication of the first in what is promised to be a new series of volumes dedicated to making available the results of recent fieldwork is a promising event. [...] [B]ecause some contributions will be of importance for some time to come ... there will be some demand for specialist libraries to subscribe to the series..."
