This section has two reports related to the project as well as teaching resources for teachers and students. The teaching resources were originally written to supplement school textbooks in Turkmenistan to teach students about one of the country's most important sites. While the resources were designed to be used in conjunction with a site visit, they still offer excellent examples of archaeological teaching material.
