Tayinat Archaeological Project Online

[First posted in AWOL  18 September 2012, updated (additional open access articles) 10 July 2017] 

Tayinat Archaeological Project
After a 70 year hiatus, the Tayinat Archaeological Project (TAP) was launched in 1999 as part of the Amuq Valley Regional Project (AVRP), which had been systematically documenting the archaeology of the Amuq Plain since 1995. TAP was conceived within the interdisciplinary context of the AVRP as part of a long-term regional research effort investigating the historical development of urban institutions and the rise of early state-ordered societies. While previous research has documented the introduction of urban institutions, and the development of specialized craft industries and extensive inter-regional trade networks, to examine these developments on a truly regional scale, local cultural sequences must be well-documented and a precise chronological framework in place; criteria that are lacking for much of the eastern Mediterranean region.
