An archaeological site  located in the northeastern Mediterranean region of the Republic of Turkey in the state of Hatay. 
The Amheida project was started at Columbia University in 2001. Since 2008, New York University is the primary sponsoring institution, with Columbia University continuing as a partner in the project. The excavations at Amheida collaborate with other participating groups in the Dakhleh Oasis Project, an international venture now three decades old dedicated to studying the interaction between human settlement and the environment over the long span from the earliest human presence in the oasis to modern times. Amheida itself has remains spanning nearly three millennia, and paleolithic material is found along its fringes.
Amorium is the longest ongoing British excavation ever conducted in Turkey. Work at Amorium started in 1987 under the directorship of the late Prof. R. Martin Harrison of the University of Oxford. There have been field seasons every year since (with the exception of 1999, and 2010–2012), making a total of 22 years to date. The team of archaeologists, surveyors, conservators, and students that works at Amorium is very international. In recent years, for example, there have been as many as 40 team members from 10 different countries, and all of them participated in a single integrated programme of work.
New York University Excavations at Aphrodisias, which began in 1961, are sponsored by the Institute of Fine Arts in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts & Science with invaluable support from private individuals and the following groups of friends of the project: the American Friends of Aphrodisias (President, Nina Köprülü); the Aphrodisias Sevenler Dernegi in Izmir (President, Lise Sur); the Friends of Aphrodisias Trust in London (President, Lady Patricia Daunt); the Association des Amis d'Aphrodisias in Paris (President, Christian Le Roy; Vice-Presidents, Nathalie de Chaisemartin and Pascale Linant de Bellefonds); and the Geyre Vakfi in Istanbul (President, Ömer Koç)
This notebook hopes to give life again to that spirit of knowledge-at-everybody's-reach, so often professed by Linda Schele, and intends to fill some of the void left by her departure. Not unlike the The Copan Notes and the notebooks for the workshops at the University of Texas, this manual does not pretend to be "the final and definitive work" on the Copan monuments. Instead, it is hoped that it will be a flexible, didactic instrument which will allow for corrections and modifications, as knowledge advances, and which may promote dialogue and interchange among those interested. It is an effort to collect information dispersed in many places and reflect an educated opinion about the current knowledge of the decipherment and interpretation of these monuments. We hope that it will be available both to the scholar and those that are just curious so that we may all enjoy it.

The American School of Classical Studies has been excavating in the area of the Athenian Agora since 1931, bringing to light the history of the area over a period of 5000 years. Finds range from scattered pieces of pottery of the late Neolithic period (ca. 3000 BC) to the contents of 19th and early 20th century basements. The Agora of the 5th and 4th centuries BC has been the main focus of attention. Scholars have identified the often scanty material remains on the basis of ancient references to the Agora as the center of civic activity of ancient Athens. Public documents inscribed on stone, weight and measure standards, and jurors’ identification tickets and ballots reflect the administrative nature of the site, while traces of private dwellings in the area immediately bordering the open square, with their household pottery and other small finds, throw light on the everyday lives of Athenian citizens.
