International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
I have been study as a member of ARCANE Project in 2010 and TOPOI Project II since 2012. In ARCANE I worked especially metall production, potteru and burial custom of Northern Part of central Anatolia during the EBA.
I Prepared a database in Berlin DAI- Eurasien Abteilung. This database also will appear as a digital map of the innovations on metalwork from the late Chaolcolitic and Bronze Age periods in Anatolia and the surrounding areas which will be published online on the website of the project.
