- Ben Marsh: Summer Fieldwork in Turkey
Ben Marshspent a month this summer doing geoarchaeological fieldwork in central Turkey, funded by a Bucknell faculty research grant.
He worked on three projects:
1) A GIS-based remapping of the Iron Age and Hellenistic burial tumuli of Gordion, using historic air photos, previous mapping reports, and a field GPS survey. This research was part of an 'urban geography' project to explore the spatial relationship between the tumuli and the known settlement structure of the Phrygian capital.
The other two projects were at Bogazkoy, with the German Archaeological Institute in Turkey.
2) Camlibel Tarlasi is a Calcolithic settlement site, one of the earliest agricultural villages in central Turkey. Marsh's project was to reconstruct the pre-human landscape of the heavily eroded environs (see photo), to provide a prehistoric environmental context for the excavation.
3) He began an exploration of the patterns of landscape degradation at Hattusa, the great Hittite capital. This is the first paleo-environmental work at Hattusa, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
