Abstract: A decace of regional survey between 1995 and 2005 in the Amuq Valley in the Hatay province of southern Turkey (fig. 1), following seminal work done in the 1930s (Braidwood 1937), has produced extensive datasets to study the history of human occupation and landscape development in the region. The main insights from the work done by the Amuq Valley Regional Project (AVRP) have been presented recently by Casana and Wilkinson (2005a, in Yener 2005), with significant earlier publications including the University of Chicago dissertation by Jesse Casana (2003), and a multi-authored report on the 1995 to 1998 fieldwork seasons (Yener et al. 2000a). Particularly important results of the project concern the complex interplay between human settlement and environmental history in the later first millennium BCE and the first millennium CE.
