The chemical study of the soil samples taken from Barcın Höyük’s Neolithic level trenches M10, M11 and Late Roman trench L13 aimed to understand the function of these areas and ultimately the relationship between them. By using the ICP-OES instrument at Koç University Chemistry Lab, we applied a multi-elemental analysis to the soil samples. The numeric results were visualized on GIS, and it was possibile to depict the distribution of different elements in the subject areas. Indoor and outdoor areas showed differences in the accumulation density of different elements.
