Description

The Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project (RCSP) completed its field work in 2011. Between 1996 and 2011 the RCSP successfully conducted thirteen field seasons (1996-2005, 2007-2008, 2011). The survey investigation strategically targeted four distinct landscape regions in the survey area: the urban sites and plains and ridges along the coast (Coastal Region, 1996-1999); the “Mesogeia” (Adanda Canyon and Kaledran Basin, 2000-2004); the Tauros Highland (Bickici Highland, 2003, 2007-2008; and the Taşeli Plateau, 2011).  In all, some 1000 hectares of Rough Cilician rural terrain were investigated, some 160 “sites” were inspected, and some 9400 fragments of pottery were processed. the RCSP Context Pottery Collection supplements the RCSP Ceramics Study Collection that contains more complete documentation and more detailed metadata.

The RCSP Context Pottery Collection contains all the pottery processed by the survey team. To lend spatial coherency to the data, we have arranged the datasets according to specified regions. From north to south, coast to interior these include (see Figure 1 in the accompanying gallery to this page)

  • the Laertes Region (the urban site of Laertes and the Syedra Kiln Site)
  • the Iotape Region (the urban site of Iotape and neighboring rural sites and transects)
  • the Delice River Region (rural sites and transects near the Delice River)
  • the Biçkici River Region (Biçkici Kiln Site and neighboring rural sites and transects)
  • the Selinus Region (the urban site of Selinus and satellite settlements)

  • the Antioch Region (the urban site of Antiochia ad Cragum and satellite settlements)
  • the Charadros Region (the urban site of Charadros and neighboring rural sites and transects)
  • the Adanda Region (sites and transects inspected in the Adanda Canyon during the 2000-2004 seasons, including Lamos, Asar Tepe, Govan Asarı, Tomak Asari, Gocuk Asarı, and Gurcam Kale)
