Dear Colleagues and Students,
You are cordially invited to the Seminar of Archaeology about “A multidisciplinary approach to the analysis of early social complexity: the KRASP project 2017-2021.”
The speaker is Dr. Michele Massa
Postdoctoral Research Scholar,
Mansueto Institute & Oriental Institute,
University of Chicago
Zoom meeting on Wednesday 20 October 2021, 16:30-19:00
The class will present the results of the Konya Regional Archaeological Survey Project (KRASP), whose aim was to shed light on the development of complex societies in central Anatolia between the Aceramic Neolithic and the end of the Iron Age (9000-300 BCE). It focused on analyzing the processes of sedentism, urbanization, state formation and imperial control in a regional context, and understanding the impact of human activities on the natural environments.
To achieve these goals, KRASP has created a collaborative network of specialists working on satellite imagery analysis, landscape archaeology, geomorphology, provenance and chemical composition analysis, RTI, 3D modelling and philology.
