Hacinebi Archaeological Excavations
The 6000 year old site of Hacinebi, in the Euphrates river valley of southeast Turkey is the focus of an ongoing research by an international team of archaeologists, art historians, and materials scientists. Six field seasons of excavation at this site (1992-1997) and two seasons of artifact analysis at the Sanliurfa Provincial Museum (1998-1999) have been investigating the earliest known colonial network - established by the first urbanized state societies of Mesopotamia during the Uruk period, ca. 3700-3100 BC. Excavations at Hacinebi have recovered evidence for the establishment of an Uruk trading colony in the midst of this pre-existing Anatolian settlement. The Hacinebi project seeks to understand the Local Late Chalcolithic societies of southeast Anatolia and the ways in which they changed during this early period of culture contact with Mesopotamia.
