Abstract

This study presents a detailed examination of a metal figurine found during the 2019 excavations at Murat Hoyuk, located on the bank of the Murat River in the Solhan district of the Province Bingol in Eastern Anatolia. Because the mound was to be inundated by the Asagi Kalekoy hydroelectric dam, extensive salvage excavations were conducted at the site in 2019 under the directorship of the Elazig Museum. Four main settlement phases (Medieval, Middle Iron, Early Iron, Early Bronze) were documented at the site with the earliest habitation dating to the Early Bronze Age III (2500-2200 BC).
