Cide Archaeological Project

Cide Archaeological Project
Researchers: Dr. Bleda Düring
The Cide Archaeological Project (CAP) is a three year archaeological survey, which started in 2009. CAP is an international collaborative project co-directed by Bleda Düring (Leiden University), Claudia Glatz (University of Glasgow) and Tevfik Emre Şerifoğlu (Çanakkale On-Sekiz Mart Üniversitesi).

The project aims to explore and investigate the archaeological remains of the coastal Black Sea district of Cide and the adjacent inland district of Şenpazar (Kastamonu province, Turkey) using a combination of both targeted extensive and intensive archaeological surface surveying techniques. CAP is a multi-period survey with a special focus on exploring previously undocumented or little understood periods in the wider region such as the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages.
