|Mound: East |
|Location: East Mound. Lower flank to the southeast, south of the South Area. |
Istanbul in 2005 - 6 & 2008, was located on the lower southwest flank of the East mound, close to the site perimeter fence. The area was targeted to trace early levels of the Neolithic sequence extrapolated from where earlier levels were identified in the South Area. The area however, revealed structures of the later levels, demonstrating that different parts of the mound were occupied at different times. Neolithic structures were traced up to the site perimeter fence, indicating that the archaeological sequence continues below the public dirt track that runs between the East and West mounds.
History: Backfilled and reinstated to original form.
