Exploring an Ancient City through Simulations of Urban Movement at Kerkenes Dağ, Turkey
Dr. Scott Branting, Director, Center for Ancient Middle Eastern Landscapes (CAMEL) and Research Assistant Professor, Oriental Institute, University of Chicago
The power of using transportation simulations to analyze urban movement and activities has long been known in a range of disciplines. Yet the difficulty of implementing such an analysis for ancient movement has long held back its development in archaeology. This talk presents the results and verification program of the GIS-T and agent-based simulations along the street network of the Iron Age city at Kerkenes Dağ in central Turkey.
