Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 62 H2 Gordion/Vindia?

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Yassıhüyük. Gordion was included in the UNESCO Tentative List of World Heritage in 2012. Alfred and Gustav Körte carried out the first excavations at the site in 1900 under the auspices of the German Archaeological Institute, with Alfred Körte having identified the site in 1893. Excavation resumed in 1950 under Rodney S. Young (University of Pennsylvania). Excavations under Young continued through 1973. With Young's death in 1974, excavations lapsed until 1988 when they continued under Mary Voigt. Voigt's campaigns concluded in 2005.
