Die Deutsche Orient-Gesellschaft ist 1898 in Berlin gegründet worden. Sie sollte Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der orientalischen Altertumskunde fördern und einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit zugänglich machen. Den historischen Hintergrund bildete das in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jhs. stark gestiegene Interesse der Allgemeinheit an den "Ländern der Bibel", in denen seinerzeit vornehmlich Engländer und Franzosen aufsehenerregende Entdeckungen machten.
The Istanbul Department is dedicated to archaeological research in modern Turkey, with one focus on Byzantium. The Greek settlement founded in the 7th century BC became the Roman city of Constantinople in the 4th century AD and is now known as the Turkish metropolis Istanbul. As a second research focus, the Istanbul Department manages monument excavations in West Turkey (Pergamum, Milet, Didyma). Hittite culture and the Hittite capital Hattusa-Bogazköy in central Anatolia constitute another key research interest. The department’s research activities cover prehistory and ancient history, beginning in the 10th millennium BC and continuing through the Ottoman era into the 20th century.
Towards the end of the 19th century, the French Embassy’s translation office was situated at the current IFEA’s currently location. Later, in 1930, the IFEA was originally founded as the French Archaeological Institute in Istanbul. Researches at the IFEA expanded up to turcology. And the institution became French Institute of Anatolian Studies in 1975. The IFEA aims to bring together European and Turkish researchers from various disciplines of social sciences, working on subjects related to Turkey. The IFEA hosts three main study units: archeology, history and contemporary studies.
NIT is a research centre dedicated to the study of the (historical) cultures and societies of Anatolia and Turkey.

As an organization, we at ASOR go about fulfilling this mission in a number of ways. We publish journals, monographs, e-newsletters, and a blog, all dedicated to disseminating news of discoveries about, and cutting-edge analyses of, the Near East, to both scholarly and public audiences. We sponsor an Annual Meeting, where the same sorts of new discoveries and cutting-edge analyses are presented. We offer researchers our financial support, including support for archaeologists of the Near East engaged in field research and support for students who want to travel to the Near East to participate in an archaeological dig. And we’re even on television – via the ASORtv channel on YouTube.

aymakçı is the largest Middle to Late Bronze Age (2000-1200 BCE) citadel currently known in western Turkey. Located 100 km inland from Izmir and the Mediterranean Coast, the ancient site is located in a valley surrounded by modern agricultural fields. Rising above the adjacent river valley, the once fortified site likely held political and economic control over the surrounding area.
