This volume contains the excavation report for 15 inhumation burials from the Phrygian site of Gordion in central Anatolia. These tombs, dating from the late eighth through the third quarter of the sixth century B.C., were excavated by The University Museum in 1950, 1951, 1955-1957, and 1969. The processes for internment through construction of tumulus are carefully detailed, followed by an analysis of associated finds. Chapters deal with a general overview of constructional methods, grave assemblages, and chronology.
