Alacahoyuk is one of the few Early Bronze Age settlements in Anatolia with an obvious social hierarchy. At the top of this hierarchy was a privileged elite buried in royal tombs that were excavated between 1935 and 1940. In total, fourteen such tombs were found within the settlement of Alacahoyuk (see fig. 1).
