III: Events
One hundred-foot shaft in the Alishar Mound in Turkey contains the most inclusive stratified culture sequence ever found still in position, covering some four thousand years. A University of Chicago Oriental Institute expedition discovered, at the lowest levels, remains of Stone Age houses, and Iron Age examples in the higher levels. Strata in between date to the Copper and Bronze ages.
