Özet

Recent archaeological work at the Neolithic site of Haci Huseyin (also Husrev), located in the southern part of the Gelibolu (Gallipoli) peninsula, reveals clear evidence of the presence of a Neolithic settlement that played an important role on the Neolithization of the Thrace region. Discovered during a systematic field survey in the autumn of 2007, Haci Huseyin hoyuk is one of four important Neolithic sites on the Gelibolu Peninsula. Owing to earlier destruction by modern buildings and highway construction along the coast there may originally have been more than these four Neolithic sites in the region. Today the Neolithic settlement of Haci Huseyin has the form of a nearly flat settlement divided into two by the road to the village of Bigali. The intensive fieldwork projects on the peninsula were focused mainly on pre-Neolithic and Neolithic settlements and were undertaken by an interdisciplinary team of archaeologists and geologists. A large number of lithics were collected during 2007-2011 field surveys. This paper presents the preliminary results of a techno-typological analysis of the lithic assemblages from the site.
