Abstract and Keywords

This article presents data on the Iron Age of central Anatolia. After describing the geographical context of the Anatolian plateau, it outlines advances and constraints in the development of a regional chronological framework. The current understanding of the Iron Age is then explored based on recent excavations of Iron Age levels at four sites: Gordion, Boğazköy, Kaman–Kalehöyük, and Çadır Höyük. Recent work at Kerkenes Dağ and Dorylaion/Eskişehir, as well as regional surveys, provide some additional shape to this still-fragmentary picture. The evidence from the sites suggests occupational continuity following the collapse of the Hittite Empire, despite indications of significant socioeconomic and political changes.

Keywords: Anatolian plateau, Gordion, Boğazköy, Kaman–Kalehöyük, Çadır Höyük
