Summary of Event:

Working in collaboration with the Konya Regional Archaeological Survey Project (KRASP), in 2019 the Türkmen-Karahöyük Intensive Survey Project began a high-resolution survey of Türkmen-Karahöyük, the largest Bronze-Iron Age mound in the Konya Plain. Although the survey is still ongoing, prompt publication of preliminary results was necessary following two exciting discoveries: first, that the site may have been as large as 125 ha or more during the Late Bronze and Iron Ages, and second, an eighth century Hieroglyphic Luwian inscription authored by "Great King Hartapu," long known from the enigmatic monuments of Kızıldağ and Karadağ. Together these findings suggest that Türkmen-Karahöyük was Hartapu’s capital city and that his kingdom was one of the most significant geopolitical actors in Anatolia at the time.
