Boncuklu Goes Live!

We are now pleased to announce the completion of the website which carries lots of information about the Boncuklu project – the excavation of a 10,500 year old archaeological site in Central Turkey.  Please take a moment to visit the website at, where you will find out about life in Neolithic Boncuklu. During the excavation season you can watch as we uncover new discoveries and read the daily updates (between mid July and September). 

For the Boncuklu Hoyuk project, we have now delivered a number of the planned elements of interpretation, including:


  • a new visitor centre at the site which has a series of graphic panels that explain what is going on there in Turkish and English.  
  • a children’s booklet - presenting the excavation findings with the assistance of cartoons that help to give an impression of what life was like in Turkey in the Neolithic. There are both Turkish and English versions.

We have plans to develop the interpretation further next year, so keep a look out for further developments....
