info Assumptions are often made about the levels and directions of cultural connectivity across regions in western Anatolia and the eastern Aegean in the Early Bronze Age (henceforth ‘EBA’). However, a lack of primary fieldwork data still inhibits clear conclusions and an understanding of the subtleties and variations in such patterns. In particular, primary data is still lacking from the critical coastal ‘touch-point’ of these two regions where material evidence is usually obscured by significant geomorphological change.
The purpose of the present article is to look at this complex issue of variations in regional connectivity in the EBA through a case study of unpublished primary fieldwork material from the Madra River Delta (MRD), a coastal region of northwest Anatolia (Fig. 1). Material from the excavation and surface survey of two EBA ‘tell’ sites in the MRD, carried out as part of the interdisciplinary research project, gives a rare opportunity to explore connectivity on this coastal ‘touch-point’ of the two regions, through elements of its EBA material culture ranging from ceramic and textile production to figurines. The article highlights not only the complex, and unexpected, nature of the inter-regional cultural pathways visible in the MRD itself, but also the implications – and further questions – which this raises for the cultural connections with the neighbouring region of the northeast Aegean.
The article comprises two sections. In Part A (by Lambrianides and Spencer) a brief introduction to the fieldwork carried out in the MRD is provided to give context to the subsequent analysis of the material remains. Part B of the article (written by Röcklinger and Horejs) then moves on to consider in detail the patterns from the region’s material culture and the issue of ‘connectivity’ in the third millennium.

Type: Project
info The Madra River Delta Project is a diachronic, interdisciplinary research project, which has carried out environmental, archaeological, and historical research on the west coast of Anatolia. It was begun in 1995 and run until 2000. The project comprised a geomorphological survey and borehole sampling (sediment analysis), an intensive surface survey, a geological survey, a topographical survey, excavation work along with remote sensing and architectural study projects.
