According to the archaeological findings, the Phrygians came to Gordion as early as the end of the 12th century BC as a result of the collapse of the Hittites. The earliest Phrygian settlements, which have come to light in the excavations, have the character of a village, consisting of small houses with light construction, containing materials related to daily life. In the 9th century BC, a great transformation takes place and the settlement becomes a fortress surrounded by enormous walls with large buildings. This significant change in settlement can probably be explained by the formation of a central Phrygian state administration that could thus handle the construction of large construction projects. By the end of the 9th century, the Phrygian castle had a settlement plan that was excavated after several construction phases. Right inside the main castle gate in the southeast, rectangular buildings lined up around the large courtyard with open tops form the palace area.
