Researches in Anatolia 7. The Alishar Hüyük Seasons of 1930-1932, Part 1
Hans Henning von der Osten.
This publication is the first volume of a fully organized and detailed study forming a final report on the excavations conducted by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago at Alishar Hüyük in central Asia Minor from 1927 to 1932. Alishar Hüyük is situated in a flat valley of a small tributary of the Kanak Su, the largest tributary of the Kizil Irmak, in the kaza of Sorgun (also called Kohne or Yesil Ova) in the vilayet of Yozgat (formerly Bozuk).
The site consists of a nearly oval terrace about 520 X 350 meters, from which the citadel mound with its three western spurs rises about 38 meters above the valley level. The results of the seasons of 1927-29 have been presented previously, in OIP volumes 6, 7, 19, and 20. The only material included here from those first three years is that which is considered essential for interpreting the later material or which requires new interpretation in the light of the later excavations.
