Arkeolojik Alan Yönetiminde Sürdürülebilir Yaklaşımlar: Aspat (Strobilos) Yönetim Planı Çalışmaları

Nayci, Nida
Many examples of archaeological sites possess resemblances between ancient and traditional cultures regarding tangible and intangible features in means of adaptation to their environment, building skills, economical production systems, cultural motives and belief systems. In addition to their tangible values, they reEect information values regarding local knowledge and skills for enhancement of natural resources or traditional production systems. Generation of 'sustainable development' paradigms for the past few decades caused signie cant changes in conventional management approaches for cultural heritage sites including archaeological areas. Archaeological site management policies are expected to consider environmental impacts, social integration and participation of local communities having cultural and economic bonds with that site, and development of an appropriate economic plan to achieve its sustainability during decision-making process. Hence, purpose of this paper is to evaluate relationships between sustainable development principles and archaeological management strategies in Turkey. Signie cance of sustainability paradigms and need for new approaches in relation with archaeological sites is discussed. For this purpose, results of the case-study research project entitled as "Archaeological Park Management and Agro-Tourism Planning in Ancient Agricultural Lands of Asp at (Strobilos) and Its Territorium" is evaluated. Aspat Project includes multidisciplinary researches in order to explore natural, cultural, anthropological, social values of project site; threats and problems of the area and prepare a sustainable management program and future strategies for the heritage site. The paper focuses on assessment of the outcomes of management studies in means of sustainable development principles. Comparative analysis to assess impacts of management studies on natural and cultural environment, social structure and economical resources are conducted by using SWOT analysis method. Discussions conclude with evaluations on necessity for comprehensive management approaches that will integrate values and potentials of archaeological values with sustainable development principles.


Spatial decision support system for archaeological application : a case study for Kaunos archaeological site
Baybaş, Gizem; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Öğün Çizmeli, Zeynep; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2013)
Geographically located materials are used by the archaeology to analyze and explain the socio-cultural aspects of ancient life. Thus, Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have started to be used in archaeology for many applications. Although, cooperation of GIS and archaeology is considered as beneficial, it has become insufficient to meet the requirements of archaeologists about excavation study. Therefore, the aim of this thesis is to develop Spatial Decision Support System (SDSS) which includes both th...

Handling Sub-Soil Urban Archaeological Resources In Urban Planning, Issues In İzmir Historic City Centre
Belge, Burak (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2012-12-1)
In Turkey, although most of the historic city centres have been continuously occupied since early ages, urban archaeological resources –cultural deposits underneath modern cities- could not be handled into planning process. It will be possible to strike the right balance provided that the archaeological resources are evaluated and considered in each stage of the planning and development process. At that point, urban archaeology is considered as an interdisciplinary field of study that evaluates the cultural...
A historic-contextual approach for the identification of the built heritage in historic urban areas : case of Galata district in Istanbul
Topçu, Hicran; Bakırer, Ömür; Restoration in Department of Architecture (2004)
The recent developments in the urban conservation theory has introduced a contextual perspective that gives further emphasis to the cultural integrity of the historic urban area which is created through the physical and non-physical relationships between the urban context and its components. In this perspective, the conventional identification tools of the urban conservation - the separate designation of the buildings and areas- come to be questioned, and re-formulated according to the demands created by th...
