Built on the ancient city itself, modern Tarsus attests to this cultural accumulation. However, its urban development is also an obstacle for research regarding ancient Tarsus and the knowledge that might be obtained. Thus there is a need to focus on archeological studies in various sites associated with ancient Tarsus outside the city itself. In this context, its hinterland is an important factor for understanding the city. The mountainous terrain in the district around modern Tarsus was also a part of ancient Tarsus. The surveys carried out since 2016 have not only revealed the cultural heritage of this hinterland but also have helped our understanding of some unknown aspects of ancient Tarsus, thus causing us to ask new questions.
