Chapter Thirty-Six Euchaïta
The Archaeology of Byzantine Anatolia

Euchaita was famous in the late Roman and Byzantine periods as the center of the cult of St. Theodore Tiro (“the recruit”); between the seventh and eleventh centuries and as a result of the changed strategic geography of the region following upon the early Arab-Islamic conquests, it became a military base, but after the Turkish conquest of Anatolia in the later eleventh century fell into obscurity, although apparently remained continuously occupied until the present day. Never of great economic significance, it nevertheless represents a typical small urban settlement in the central Anatolian region. Archaeological survey work from 2007–2010 traced some important aspects of its evolution.
