The department's excavations at Karatas/Semayük and at Gritille in Turkey and the regional archaeological study of the Nemea Valley Archaeological Project in Greece have finished their fieldwork and are now in the phase of analysis and publication of the results.

The Tarsus Regional Project had been initiated by Bryn Mawr College and BogaziÁi University in Istanbul to investigate the Gozlü Küle mound at Tarsus, in Cilicia, and its vicinity. A project to reexamine the site of Tarsus has been initiated by Bogaziçi University under the direction of Prof. Asli Özyar and in collaboration with Bryn Mawr College.

Further field projects in Greece or the Near East are foreseen for the future. There will be opportunities for Bryn Mawr graduate students and advanced undergraduates to participate in these projects. In addition, students normally take part in excavations sponsored by other institutions. Archaeology applicants interested in excavation are strongly urged to get field experience as soon as possible and to consider attending training programs in the United States or abroad, as well as in the area of their special interest.
