Archaeology, Nationalism and Heritage in Islamic Society: a Turkish Case Study is an investigation undertaken by Dr David Shankland into the relationship between culture, nationalism and the remains of the past within Islam, taking Turkey as a specific example. The research took place between July 2000 and September 2001 in the Konya region of Turkey, centering largely upon the Neolithic archaeological site of Catalhoyuk. Visits were also made to population centers, such as nearby Konya, for the purposes of comparison and corroboration of findings.
