Title: Basalt Landforms and the Prehistory of Eastern Smooth Cilicia and Northern Hatay
Author(s): YÜKMEN EDENS, Bakiye
Volume: 44 Date: 2018
Survey and excavation in northern Hatay and Smooth Cilicia (Adana and Osmaniye) have largely failed to find Palaeolithic and Aceramic Neolithic sites. The author here reports two seasons of a survey focused specifically on and around basalt landforms in Ceyhan (Adana), Erzin (Hatay) and Hassa (Hatay). The survey succeeded in finding Palaeolithic and Aceramic Neolithic, and later prehistoric, chipped stone. These results are presented and some of the implications of the results are discussed.
