Changes on the Land: Gordion in the 1st mill BCE

Author(s): Lisa Kealhofer; Peter Grave; Ben Marsh

Year: 2017


Throughout the 1st mill BCE, the inhabitants of Gordion engaged with multiple changes in political power and agricultural strategies, within a diverse landscape with shifting climate regimes. Over most of this period, the city, its industries, and its hinterland population thrived. Using multiple lines of evidence, both material and environmental, this paper explores what we know about changes in the organization of different production spheres at Gordion in order to understand how changing political and economic strategies intertwined with this diverse, dynamic, and unpredictable environment.
