TR204 Ernst Pernicka Project Troia "Only a small part of a city as large as Troia can be investigated by means of excavation. Even after 132 years of archaeology at Troia less than five per cent of the total area has been excavated. Consequently it is necessary, and makes good sense, to accompany excavation with other methods of field exploration. Since the 2002 excavation season but intensively only from 2003, the city area of Troia has been explored by a further method--by means of a systematic survey." Korfmann 2004 p.9 Turkey
TR206 Tony James Wilkinson Chicago Euphrates Archaeological Survey "The area investigated lay within a hitherto poorly understood area of the Euphrates valley to the north of Urfa." Wilkinson 1990 p.1 Turkey
TR209 Robert Braidwood (de The Joint Prehistoric Project (in Cayonu) "The Joint Prehistoric Project comprises several archaeological expeditions in Iraq, Iran, and Turkey dating from 1947. All of these separate excavations, however, sought the solution to a general problem: "How are we to understand those great changes in mankind's way of life which attended the first appearance of the settled village-farming community?" This project exemplifies the Oriental Institute's pioneering work in interdisciplinary research designs for archaeology. Its staff routinely includes not only archaeologists and physical anthropologists, but also specialists from the fields of botany, geology, and zoology."--University of Chicago website Turkey

However, the geographical characteristics of the survey area did set off neatly a separate and well-delimited center of populationwhich could be studied conveniently as a unit and whose growth, cultural development, and external relations could be defined rather clearly." Whallon 1979 p1,2 Turkey
TR253 D. H. French Adiyaman Survey This survey began in response to the construction of the Ataturk dam, which was going to flood the survey area. Additionally, the area had only been been surveyed extensively during summer months when there was a great deal of vegetation covering the ground, so an intensive survey during cooler months produced a large body of new data.
