(p.302) Chapter Twenty-Seven Sagalassos
The Archaeology of Byzantine Anatolia

This chapter charts changes in the city scape of Sagalassos as well as in the material culture and settlement pattern of the surrounding countryside. After a last urban building boom around AD 400, the city of Sagalassos was in decline by the later sixth century, while the villages in the surrounding countryside appear to have been more stable. During the Invasion Period the city was reduced to a fortress plus some scattered occupation throughout the ancient ruins, and the countryside turned from crop cultivation to livestock herding. Rural settlement recovered during the middle Byzantine period, and at Sagalassos churches were renovated and the fortress contained evidence of intensive occupation from the late eleventh through the thirteenth centuries, probably in response to the Turkish presence in the region.
