In this brief report we would like to present Prehistoric ceramics collected at a number of sites in central Zonguldak. These assemblages are of interest in relation to the broader topic of Anatolian Prehistory for two reasons. First, at present nothing has been published about the Prehistory of this part of northern Turkey, except in passing in brief reports in the Arkeoloji Sonuçları Toplantısı (Karauğuz 2005; 2006; 2007). Second, we are convinced that some of these sherds date to the fifth millennium BC, and are thus of great importance because they date to the Middle Chalcolithic (ca. 5500 to 4000 cal BC), which is archaeologically poorly documented and understood across most of Asia Minor.
