The aim of the Turco-Italian archaeological expedition at Karkemish, directed by Nicolò Marchetti since 2011, is to employ a long-term integrated research strategy to shed light on the history of the town, explore its urban layout and cultural sequence through the ages, contextualize the site within its landscape, conserve it and present it to the public. As part of this endeavour, the authors present here the final report on the intensive survey carried out by the Turco-Italian Expedition at the cemetery of Yunus between 2011 and 2012, meant to address a number of questions left unanswered by the 1910s British Museum excavations. The research included the drafting of a detailed topographical map of the Yunus necropolis and its surrounding area (including an analysis of morphology and soil use), the analysis of the chronological range of occupation at Yunus and the evolution of the use of the site’s space through time.

Abstract

The aim of the Turco-Italian archaeological expedition at Karkemish, directed by Nicolò Marchetti since 2011, is to employ a long-term integrated research strategy to shed light on the history of the town, explore its urban layout and cultural sequence through the ages, contextualize the site within its landscape, conserve it and present it to the public. As part of this endeavour, the authors present here the final report on the intensive survey carried out by the Turco-Italian Expedition at the cemetery of Yunus between 2011 and 2012, meant to address a number of questions left unanswered by the 1910s British Museum excavations. The research included the drafting of a detailed topographical map of the Yunus necropolis and its surrounding area (including an analysis of morphology and soil use), the analysis of the chronological range of occupation at Yunus and the evolution of the use of the site’s space through time.
