Site Conservation 2020

Although there was no excavation or architectural conservation this season, we were able to clean the Citadel Mound and do a condition assessment of those buildings on the Citadel Mound that had been conserved last year, including the Early Phrygian citadel’s East Gate. We look forward to an especially ambitious architectural conservation program in 2021, when we will return to Gordion’s industrial district, the Terrace Complex, to finish conserving the walls that had been damaged in the great fire of 800 B.C.
