Our philosophy

The scientific level of the archaeological work carried out in Küçükyalı ArkeoPark is always kept at the highest level. The results of archaeological excavations carried out by experienced and skilled experts are documented in detail and shared with the scientific community. The needs and the expectations of the residents of the neighbourhood are always kept in the forefront during the participation based “public archaeology” activities which are carried out parallel to the archaeological excavations. Sustainability is the basic principal for archaeological excavations, architectural and landscape design, cultural heritage educations and activities executed with the participation of the residents of the neighbourhood. Moreover, no change on the boundaries of the first degree protected archaeological site and the built environment is envisaged as a result of archaeological excavations and research.
