The RCSP survey team investigated the region of the Adanda Canyon in the Rough Cilician midlands between 2000 and 2004. In 2000 the pedestrian team employed a coarse interval procedure to walk the entire rim of the canyon as well as all open firebreaks. Ceramic finds of any significant concentrations were processed within 20m radii. In 2001 the team conducted close-interval “flag” survey to walk transects through all urban sites as well as in off-site terrain in the river valley below. The team returned in 2002-2004 to conduct additional targeted transects while the architectural team completed architectural mapping of the principal sites. These include Lamos (urban site), Asar Tepe (urban site), Gocuk Asarı (RC 0030, monumental village), Govan Asarı (RC 0040, monumental village), Tomak Asarı (RC 0019, fortified village), and Gurcam Kale (RC0408, necropolis).
