Location: This site is in the city of Istanbul; east of the suburb of Pendik; on an agricultural field by the sea; between the neighborhood of Bekleme; locally known as Madalli Bahçesi; and the Temenye Peninsula. The site; discovered by Atasayan; has since been destroyed by modern development. Kökten reports that he found another site he calls Hacet Deresi near the village of Aydinli; very close to that reported by Atasayan northeast of Pendik .
Geography and Environment: The Pendik Region east of the Marmara Sea today has forested mountains to the north; a temperate climate and abundant water sources. In the Palaeolithic as well as in later periods; it may well have been an attractive location for habitation.
