Discovering Archaeology

Stories from the everyday life of our excavation project


On this website you will find content, pictures and information that will bring you close to the work of an archaeological excavation.

“We could imagine nothing pleasanter than to spend all of our lives digging for relics of the past.”

H. Schliemann

You always wanted to know how an excavation is done? Why we do what we do? You have asked yourself what we actually do during a day of an archaeological excavation? Or do you want to know how we prepare for a 2-month-long excavation abroad? Then follow our journey. We will publish reports, pictures and background information about our excavation project in Doliche, south-east Turkey. The aim is to show our work from a different perspective than the sole academic viewpoint. We hope to give you a glimpse behind the scenes of our everyday life.

Follow our Blog entries or have a look in our galleries for pictures from recent excavations. We will keep you updated during our stay in Doliche and will also post entries which follow our work after the campaign is over. If you want to keep updated, why not register with our E-Mail newsletter? You will always be notified once a new entry has been uploaded.
