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 Bogaziçi 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.

Peter Magee is co-director of the Akra Excavation in North West Frontier Province, Pakistan, and director of the Australian Excavation at Muweilah in the United Arab Emirates. Astrid Lindenlauf has been excavating in Naukratis, Egypt in collaboration with the British Museum since 2014.

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.
