The mentioned specialist had met in the facilities at Çatalhöyük several times and discussed some specific questions regarding the methodology of analyses, the presentation of the finds, and the ways of our further communication while presenting our findings to each other. We also discussed the format of the future publication (to comprise one textual volume accompanied with a number of CD-rom containing additional data and details of analyses).
Also, there are specialists who undertook the analyses of the Bach recorded materials who were not present on the site in 2004 but will be presented in the final publication. These include the analyses of ceramics (by J. Last), phytoliths (by A. Rosen), clay balls (by S. Atalay), flaked stone (by H. Underbjerg), and Byzantine finds (by D. Cottica).
The Bach Project is not here presenting archive report on the above-mentioned analyses because they are in progress and will soon be completed and available. All the mentioned specialists will carry on further analysis of the recorded material during 2004-5 with the aim of producing a draft text by spring of 2005, and final text by the end of 2005.
