Anadolu University Archaeology Department Associate Ali Umut Turkcan said Kanlitas was one of the unique mounds in western Anatolia, adding, “Excavations have revealed a structure 10-15 meters deep underground. The material used in this structure shows us traditional Anatolian architecture. We found more than three dozens of marble bracelets from the early chalcolithic period and the tools used in their production. Kanl?tas was a marble bracelet center.”
