The 2021 team

After an interruption in 2020 due to the Covid-19 sanitary crisis, a new excavation campaign was conducted at Dikili Tash during the Summer 2021 (6 weeks, in July-August). Works concerned the same two areas that had been explored in 2019: sector 7, at the top of the tell, where we continued the investigation of Bronze Age levels, and sector 9, on the Northern slope, where we intend to expose a full Neolithic sequence. The team included 35 persons in total, archaeologists, students and workmen, coming from Greece, France and Bulgaria. Preliminary reports should soon be published in the Chronique des fouilles en ligne, the Bulletin Archéologique des Écoles françaises à l’étranger, the Ergon and the Praktika of the Archaeological Society at Athens.
