Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

 

In 1996 Richard Blanton and Nicholas Rauh from Purdue University were awarded an NSF grant #9600617 for a two year archaeological survey in the Antioch region on the Turkish coast. This is award grew into the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project (RCASP), an international, multi-institutional, and interdisciplinary research project that spanned over a decade. The RCASP conducted a regional survey in the Alanya and Gazipaşa districts of the Antalya Province in Turkey between 1996-2011. The Project employed a multi-phased process of archaeological inspection including pedestrian survey of urban and rural terrain, architectural mapping of surviving features, ceramics collections, geological survey, deforestation research, and maritime survey.
