Actually, after further review I think it might be a different dig Aslan is associated with. From what I can tell, not only is he the assistant
director of the Troy dig proper, he's also in charge of numerous others in and around the area to find settlements from that era and earlier. The dig
talked about in the OP is located(from what I can tell) on the european side of the Dardanelles near the Aegean entrance and the one in the article I
linked is located farther south and inland on the Turkey side of the straits.
Also, apparently they found an ancient seed(a grain of some kind...can't seem to relocate the article that mentions it) at another site and were able
to get it to bloom and now scientists can use it to compare to our modern breeds.

**edit**BTW, if anyone call tell me what "Mevkisi'nde Işıldakaltı Tepe" translates to or happens to know exactly where it is located, I'd really
appreciate the information. I'm trying to locate the site on Google Earth and apparently that's the specific name of the 'mound' they discovered this
