Özet


In this article, the pottery fragments and small finds crafted from the various materials such as baked clay, stone, dated to the Early Bronze Age which were uncovered in Oluz Höyük. Our knowledge regarding the Central Black Sea Region which was shaped with the evidence uncovered by the excavations in İkiztepe has been increased by the data gained from Oluz Höyük which is located inland part of the region. However, since the Early Bronze Age cultural layers were located beneath the Middle Bronze Age, Late Bronze Age, Iron Age, Hellenistic Period and even the Roman and Byzantine Period strata which sometimes reaches the depth of several meters and that these strata were not thoroughly excavated until today, kept us from reaching the architectural layers of Early Bronze Age. The presence of the aforementioned layers in Oluz Höyük prevented the large scale excavation of the Early Bronze Age settlement until this day. However, the discovery of the finds important for dating process such as pottery, stone casting mold, seal and idol in the excavations of Oluz Höyük so far, points out the Early Bronze Age presence which is connected to the Central Anatolia in the settlement.
