Gordion is one of the most important archaeological sites in the Near East, and since 1950, it has been extensively investigated by the University of Pennsylvania and other institutions, in over 30 annual excavation campaigns.
The Friends of Gordion is an organization of persons who are interested in Gordion, the Phrygians, and archaeology in Turkey. It supports the ongoing activities of the Gordion Excavation Project, which include site conservation and publications of the latest discoveries. All Friends of Gordion receive the annual newsletter that provides information about the results of the season's work. Friends are especially welcome at Gordion and are given guided tours of the site, the excavation, and the museum. Every contribution, no matter how small, enables us to further the cause of protecting and publicizing the site.
