The British Institute at Ankara (BIAA) presents The Oliver Gurney Memorial Lecture given by Professor Dr. K. Aslıhan Yener
The Oriental Institute, (Emerita) University of Chicago. Koç University (Emerita) Department of Archaeology and History of Art

Tell Atchana, (ancient Alalakh), is well suited to contribute to the topic of ritual landscapes. We are particularly interested in the introduction of new cults and their associated rituals in the international Late Bronze Age, when many foreign contacts and eventually foreign overlords such as the Hittites affected local society on many levels. This lecture will focus on newly excavated contexts and dating, sacred architecture, new seals, and burial practices.
