sites & excavations
Turkey today broadly encompasses ancient Anatolia, a region of inestimable archaeological heritage and historical importance, with sites ranging from the Neolithic period to Late Antiquity (Rome and Byzantium), and a vast mosaic of ancient cultures. Making the most of this wealth of potential information, Turkey has played (and continues to play) host to a wide variety of archaeological investigations. Moreover, a large number of sites are readily accessible to the traveller fascinated by archaeology, history and ancient Mediterranean culture.
