Rather than focusing solely on the heritage of the Ottoman elite, in an Ottoman archaeology we potentially can find a new methodology to focus on the lives of women as well as the men of the past; the lower as well as the upper classes; ethnic and religious groups; the urban poor; the peasantry; and the nomads.

We follow those archaeologists who wish to hear some of those other voices from the past.
