The Hallan Cemi material presented here is derived from four seasons of excavation (1991-1994). Major funding for this project was provided by the National Geographic Society, the National Science Foundation, the University of Delaware Research Foundation, and the American Research Institute in Turkey. Additional funding and other types of support were provided by Mobil Exploration Mediterranean Inc. (Turkey), various institutions within the Turkish Ministry of Culture, the University of Delaware, University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Michigan. We would like to thank Ian Kuijt and Mitchell S. Rothman for their thoughtful critiques of earlier drafts of this chapter. All of their suggestions could not be acted on within the constraints of the present format, but those that were acted on greatly improved the chapter. Their efforts are deeply appreciated.
