Since 1987 a multidisciplinary research project is being carried out in the eastern Marmara region to study early farming communities. Fifteen summer seasons have been spent to investigations at Ilıpınar HöyPuk including next to purely archaeological work, landscape studies, analyses on human, botanical and faunal remains and dating techniques. Within the framework of this project, limited excavations were carried out on the mound of Menteşse situated in the Yenişehir plain ca. 25 km south of Ilıpınar. With a final campaign in 2000, fielwork at Menteşe was concluded. As it was meant from the outset as a rescue excavation under the auspices of the Museum of Iznik, it had purposely kept the scale of a sounding.
