|The Amorium Excavations Project|
Welcome to the website for the Excavation Project of the Byzantine city of Amorium, located in the village of Hisarköy, near the town of Emirdağ, Afyonkarahisar, Turkey. Here you will find access to photographs, publications and further information about the city, the archaeological investigation, and the archaeologists.
Amorium is the longest ongoing British excavation ever conducted in Turkey. Work at Amorium started in 1987 under the directorship of the late Prof. R. Martin Harrison of the University of Oxford. There have been field seasons every year since (with the exception of 1999, and 2010–2012), making a total of 22 years to date. The team of archaeologists, surveyors, conservators, and students that works at Amorium is very international. In recent years, for example, there have been as many as 40 team members from 10 different countries, and all of them participated in a single integrated programme of work.
The Project wishes to thank the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage and Museums at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Ankara for its continued support and approval.
In 2012 the Amorium Excavations Project celebrated its 25th year.
