The Digital Repository consists of digital collections, research projects and events. The digital collections include Photographic, Squeeze, Botanical Reference, Animal Bone Reference, Pottery Reference, and Drawings collections, as well as Archaeological Documents and Official Documents. In addition to these material types, individual archive collections were created based on the project area (e.g. Tille Höyük Archive) or collector name (e.g. Alan Hall Archive).
