Gozlukule Mound takes place on a 22-meter high hill in Mersin, Turkey. Archeological excavations have shown that it was an inhabited for a long time and without interruption for the last 9,000 years, until the Early Islamic Period. The first archeological digs were done by Hetty Goldman in 1935–39 and 1947–49. The results of these excavations were published in three volumes and constitute one of the main reference sources in Anatolian archeology. Excavations and researches are still continuing.
