Karya’daki Geç Antik Ve Bizans Dönemi Yapı Ve Yerleşimleri Üzerine Bazı Gözlemler

The present research, which is part of a larger, long-term project entitled the 'Archaeological Survey of the Gulf of Mandalya, Caria', aims to document and interpret the Late Antique and Byzantine monuments and topography of Caria (5th-13th c. AD) and covers the results of nine years of fieldwork (2003-2011). In antiquity the survey-area largely remained under the jurisdiction of Iasos (mod. Kiyikislacik) - the major extinct city in the area - giving its name to the entire territory. This work investigates the types of buildings, sites, and settlements identified in the survey-area, their distribution across the landscape and the possible factors influencing this distribution, as well as their association with the major ancient cities in the area, namely Iasos and Bargylia. In this context, emphasis is placed on the identification and interpretation of different types of rural settlements (e.g., villages, habitats, agricultural establishments) in terms of land use and management. This research adopts the theories and methods of a holistic approach and attempts to understand the development of settlement patterns in association with the social, economic, religious, and cultural context of that period of transition from antiquity to the Middle Ages. With this premise, this study intends to offer recent archeological data for a better understanding of the urban territoria and countryside of ancient Caria.


An investigation of strengthening of historical masonry constructions by steel skeleton
Küçükdoğan, Bilge; Ünay, Ali İhsan; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2007)
Historical masonry structures are important cultural assets which reveal the social, archaeological, aesthetic, economical, political, architectural and technical features of their times. Within the course of the time, the structures have been exposed to the destructive effects of the nature and the man. Some has been able to survive somehow and others were totally ruined. Most of the remained structures are in vulnerable condition to upcoming effects and for the continuity of their presence, structural str...
Improved methodology for identification of Goktepe white marble and the understanding of its use: A comparison with Carrara marble
Wielgosz-Rondolino, Dagmara; Antonelli, Fabrizio; Bojanowski, Maciej J.; Gladki, Marcin; Göncüoğlu, Mehmet Cemal; Lazzarini, Lorenzo (2020-01-01)
The provenance of marbles used for ancient statuary and architecture is of utmost importance for archaeologists, art historians and archaeometrists. The aim of this paper is to provide a comprehensive characterisation of the white marble exploited in antiquity in Goktepe (Mugla Province, Turkey) to increase the reliability for identifying this marble in ancient artefacts. A campaign of interdisciplinary archaeological and geological fieldwork undertaken by the Marmora Asiatica project is based on a multi-me...

A new approach for defining the conservation status of early Republican architecture, case study : primary school buildings in İzmir
Kul, Fatma Nurşen; Madran, Emre; Department of Architecture (2010)
International discussions on the conservation of the twentieth-century architectural heritage emphasize the diversity of the whole of the built environment of the entire century, rather than limiting consideration to canonic examples of the architectural historiography during the identification and assessment of the properties to be conserved. In contrast to this international holistic and inclusive approach, the approach to the identification and assessment of the properties in Turkey has in general been s...
Assesing the Usage of Calcium and Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles as Consolidant for Dolostones.
Karahan Dağ, Fulya; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe (2018-12-01)
Dolostone has been abundantly used in the construction of monuments during archaeological periods in Anatolia. Several of those monuments have some decay problems to be assessed and need conservation treatments to be developed. In the study, it was aimed to prepare a nanodispersive solution from the dolostone itself and follow its carbonation mineral phases in order to obtain a compatible consolidation treatment for dolostone. A mixture of calcium and magnesium hydroxide nanodispersive solution in ethyl alc...
