The relationship between archaeological sites and their immediate surroundings has long been debated, resulting in a shift of focus from the archeological vestiges alone to the physical and social environment in which they are located. In this context, emphasis has formerly been placed on the understanding of problems and potentials of archaeological sites located in urban areas; while, on the other hand, the relationship between archaeological sites and rural landscapes and settlements awaits further investigation. This study thus aims to investigate the co-existence of archaeological sites and rural settlements as integral components of rural landscapes through a selected case study, i.e. Iasos-Kıyıkışlacık, and is developed in three stages: the formation of a theoretical framework, mainly including the identification of the nature of rural areas and conservation of archaeological heritage; a detailed analysis and evaluation of the case study with its different settlement phases and components; and the development of proposals and strategies for the integrated conservation of the archaeological heritage in its rural setting. The selected study area, Iasos-Kıyıkışlacık, is a significant example reflecting the close physical and socio-economic relationship between an archaeological site and its rural setting. Such an intricate relationship inevitably produces a series of values, threats and opportunities affecting the conservation of both the archaeological site and its rural setting. Kıyıkışlacık is located on the site of the Iasian necropolis, making use of some archeological remains, mainly the chamber tombs. On the one hand, this overlapping location and architectural reuse provides some sort of protection for the archaeological remains, while on the other hand, it causes problems of and threats to the conservation, presentation and management of the archaeological site as a whole. In this context, this study analyzes the values, threats and opportunities generated by this intertwined relationship between the archaeological site and its rural setting in order to offer a series of proposals and strategies for the integrated conservation of Iasos-Kıyıkışlacık within its physical and socio-economic environment.
