Abstract

As understood from the artifacts found in the archaeological excavation areas, the obsidian belonging to the volcanic areas of the Eastern Anatolian Region spread to a very wide area by being traded in prehistoric times. For this reason, it is important to carry out a study on obsidian diffusion and volcanic-geomorphological features in the Eastern Anatolia Region.
