This third volume of the Kültepe International Meetings (KIM) series draws together multidisciplinary approaches to the archaeology and history of complex urban sites using Kültepe-Kanesh as a case study, with particular emphasis on Bronze Age material.

The 3rd Kültepe International Meeting aimed at exploring multidisciplinary approaches to the archaeology and history of complex urban sites using Kültepe-Kanesh as a case study. As a result, the conference proceedings involve a wide variety of disciplines: archaeology, ceramics, paleobotany, paleoecology, palynology, archaeometallurgy, geo- and archaeo-magnetism, art history, philology, history, computer science, and last but not least, videogame design. Indeed, the aim of the Kültepe International Meetings (KIM) is to facilitate the dialogue between these different disciplines and to combine their data in order to build an accurate view of Kültepe and its environment. The 3rd KIM more than fulfilled this goal, demonstrating once again how Kültepe functions as an international experimental laboratory in which disciplines and sub-disciplines can be tested, improved, and developed. All the contributions presented here provide a good overview of the ongoing multidisciplinary studies being carried out at Kültepe and Central Anatolia.

Fikri Kulakoğlu, Professor of Archaeology at Ankara University, is the director of Kültepe excavations since 2006 and an expert of Central Anatolian archaeology of the Bronze Age.

Cécile Michel, Assyriologist, Director of Research at the Nationl Center for Scientific Research (France) and Professor at Hamburg University, belongs, since the 90’s, to the international team in charge of the publication of Kültepe tablets.

Güzel Öztürk, Research Associate and PhD candidate at the Department of Near Eastern Archaeology at Ankara University (Turkey). She is the co-director of Kültepe excavations since 2014.
