DSC01474_Candir_Höyük_klien

The tell is located about 1 km south of the village of Çandır in the district of Çivril and the province of Denizli. There are three adjacent shallow tells within a wetland. The largest is about 300 x 260 m in size. The earliest finds were dated to the late Neolithic period and these are similar to finds made at Hacılar. Apparently, the settlement was abandoned in the early Chalkolithic and the re-inhabited in the early Bronze Age and abandoned again at the end of the Late Bronze Age. The ceramic finds are identical with Çandır Büyük and Küçük Höyük Çandır.
