Research in the plain of Elmalı and excavations on the mound of Hacımusalar, 17 kms. south of Elmalı in the central Lycian plateau of Turkey, have been continuing since 1993. The project is under the direction of İlknur Özgen of the Department of Archaeology at Bilkent University. The Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, General Directorate of Cultural Monuments and Museums, has both granted the permit and provided financial support for the project.
In addition to team members from Bilkent's Department of Archaeology, students and colleagues from several US-based institutions have also participated in the project.
