Exciting archaeology in Manisa province

Jump to last reply

The discovery of some Bronze Age castles near Lake Marmara will reveal new information about western Anatolia in the Trojan War era.

"Almost completely unexpected in our survey was the discovery of large, fortified M–LBA sites. These sites suggest that central Lydia may have been more integrated into broader Aegean and Anatolian socio-political networks than previously recognized."
Boston University Central Lydia Archaeological Survey.

The burial mounds of the Lydian kings at Bin Tepe near here are impressive. Everywhere you go in Turkey there is some fascinating archaeology going on.
