CZAP aims to make all our research open access, including publications and the underlying data. This archive contains the core data records from the investigations at Bestansur, Shimshara and Zarzi between 2012 and 2017. From here you can access and download the excavation data recorded during our excavation seasons. This data will also be freely available from the Archaeology Data Service.

A volume including final reports by the large-scale interdisciplinary team is available to purchase and for Open Access download.
