Abstract and Keywords

This article presents data on the Iron Age of southeastern Anatolia that are a direct result of the excavation of dozens of archaeological sites with Iron Age components, undertaken as salvage initiatives in advance of the construction of the Karkamiş, Biricik, Atatürk, Karakaya, and Keban Dams on the Euphrates River, and the proposed Ilısu Dam on the Tigris River. Although most of the sites excavated in these regions have been published only in preliminary reports, they nonetheless form the basis for a reworking of the Iron Age chronology of southeastern Anatolia.

Keywords: archaeological sites, excavations, chronology
