Italian Mission in Kinik Höyük (Turkey)

‘Archaeological Mission in Kinik Höyük’.

University of Firenze, Piazza S. Marco 4, 50121,  Firenze (FI), Italy.

The site of Kinik Höyük (Nigde, TR) was identified thanks to the 2006-09 archaeological survey by the University of Pavia, led by Prof. Lorenzo d’Alfonso. The geo-physical surveys (2010) revealed the presence of monumental remains. Starting in 2011, the excavations have exposed the ruins of a sanctuary city from the Achaemenid and Hellenistic periods. The remains of an important Bronze and Iron Age settlement are emerging underneath this city, with a continuity of settlement that is unique in central Anatolia.
