This article describes the results of the 2001 excavations at Tell Kurdu and presents preliminary studies on the finds categories. The Tell Kurdu Project is part of the Oriental Institute's Amuq Valley Regional Project (AVRP). Since 1995, the AVRP has been conducting a long-term program of excavations in the Amuq Valley (south-eastern Turkey) with the aim of investigating regional settlement dynamics over time. Several Oriental Institute led seasons of excavation have been conducted at the prehistoric mound of Tell Kurdu since 1996. The year 2001 marked the beginning of a new stage of research when AVRP Director K.A. Yener handed the responsibility of the excavations to the first two authors of this article.
