Project Goal

Map and explore an Iron-Age city to rediscover an ancient way of life

Location: Turkey

"The city would have been visible from a great distance, so its construction was a deliberate act of power and imposition."

Painstaking work by 2002 Associate Laureate Geoffrey Summers and his archaeological team is unearthing the secrets of an ancient city that has been hidden from the world since it was brutally destroyed in a massive fire 2,550 years ago.
