Summary

The early twelfth century BCE collapse of the Hittite Empire transformed cultural landscapes across Anatolia (Sams 2011a). These changes have variously been interpreted as the disruptive result of incoming groups, drought, local responses to a volatile political environment, either by themselves or in combination (Genz 2011; Kaniewski et al. 2015; Voigt 2011). In some regions, sites were abandoned or destroyed, while in others community organization was substantially altered. Gordion was occupied continuously through this transition, but the Early Iron Age (EIA YHSS 7) community’s material culture and social organization is marked by profound changes across a variety of spheres (i.e. ceramics, foodways, and house and storage structures).
