The contact between Han China and Central Eurasia had been drastically intensified around the turn of the Common Era when the so-called Silk Road network took shape. The northern frontiers of Han China, as important nodes of the network, were the prominent arenas in which diverse cultural, economic, and socio-political interactions took place among the people who lived a pastoral, agricultural or mixed mode of life.

Origin and Cultural Embedment of the “Stepped Monuments” of Central Anatolia

Lorenzo d'Alfonso

This lecture will take place online. Registration is required, click through for the registration link. Zoom information will be provided via confirmation email to registered participants. Anatolian step monuments are a typology of rock-carved landscape monuments spread on rocky hills and mountains of west-central Anatolia. They consist of a series of steps cut in the stone and, in some cases, an altar shaped as a stone seat with backrest. In some other cases, a platform is flattened on top of the steps, and in both cases they can count one or two carved, semi-lunate aniconic idols as well as a few Phrygian inscriptions engraved in the stone.
