Program Description
6-hour credit program that entails archaeological field work in south coastal Turkey. We will participate in a Turkish survey project directed by an archaeologist from Mimar Sinan U. in Istanbul Turkey. The team is half Turkish, half American and includes faculty from Purdue and Indiana University. The American team is conducting a pedestrian survey of previously uninvestigated maritime terrain near Silifke in the Mersin province of Turkey. The remains are largely Late Roman and Byzantine, but features from the Iron Age and Hellenistic Era have been identified as well. The survey lasts 1 month; Rauh is also conducting pottery work at nearby museums (Alanya and Anamur) and the SA program entails 2 weeks of museum work before and or after the field survey. The tentative dates are July 1 - Aug. 15, 2017. There are only a limited number of slots available. Students who participate are eligible for the SA scholarship ($2000). The immediate requirement is that the student complete a Turkish application for a research permit before the end of November to be eligible to participate in the field work. Please contact program leader for more information.
