A five year survey project has been carried out in the Malatya Plain under the direction of Gian Maria di Nocera in 2003-2007. The aim was that of identifying and understanding transformations in the occupation, relations between settlements, economic and social organisation of these in a period ranging from the V to the II millennium BCE. The results have shown a great variety of sites and degrees of mobility in the plain.
