Abstract :
Compared to certain regions of Anatolia, the archaeology of the northeastern provinces is still poorly understood. This paper presents the results of the first season of an extensive archaeological survey of the Erzurum region that was conducted under the umbrella of the broader project based at Sos Höyük. The aim of the survey is to document the changes in settlement patterns in this highland region and thus complement the cultural sequence that is emerging at Sos Höyük. Fifty-seven sites, ranging in date from the Chalcolithic to Ottoman periods, were recorded during the 1999 season, which focused on the Pasinler plain, at the headwaters of the Aras river.
