The article draws on the results of nearly fifty years of archaeological research in order to outline the form and organization of Gordion during the Middle and Late Phrygian periods, c. 700 to 350 BC. More specifically, the authors 1) describe what we know about settlement pattern and especially domestic architecture during both Middle Phrygian/YHSS Phase 5 and Late Phrygian/YHSS Phase 4 Gordion; and 2) assess the degree of architectural and organizational continuity or discontinuity between these periods as an initial indication of the impact of the Achaemenid conquest on Phrygian Gordion.
