The Anatolian Atlas is a resource for scholars interested in the archaeological settlement patterns and historical geography of Ancient Anatolia.
Here you will find an interactive map that display the results of various archaeological surveys that have been conducted in Anatolia as well as the locations of many important individual archaeological sites. This project is ongoing and the online map will be updated as more surveys are digitized, and to reflect improvements to the dataset. These sites, when possible, are linked to online content that provides more information. They also often have citations for scholarly work that has discussed them. The works that are cited can be found in the bibliography. While all points catalogued here have been checked by analysts against modern satellite imagery, many locations remain approximate. Inaccurate maps, pre-GPS publications, and inconsistent survey methodologies limit the degree to which we can identify sites, particularly small or non-mounded ones.
The Anatolian Atlas also hosts original research that has been developed in CAMEL by scholars of the Oriental Institute.
