TAY: Archeological Settlements of Turkey Project

This ambitious project is the first, and currently only, culture/settlement inventory of an entire country on the Internet. The TAY project was begun in 1993 "to build a chronological inventory of findings about the cultural heritage of Turkey." TAY accomplishes this mission by locating, identifying, and protecting archaeological sites, as well as providing a huge data pool and scientific reference base for researchers and students. The information is offered in a database located on the site. Currently, only the first section (Palaeolithic/ Epipalaeolithic) is available, but the Neolithic section is promised to be added soon. The Palaeolithic/ Epipalaeolithic section is searchable by a number of variables and contains information on 212 discovered sites. Search returns include an overview of the site (location, geography and environment, research and stratigraphy, and finds) as well as of maps and drawings. The site is also available in Turkish.
