- Program Description:
- With a backdrop of gorgeous beaches, lively resort towns, and the Mediterranean Sea, this program will introduce students to a variety of fascinating archaeological sites found along the western and southern coastlines of Turkey. These include ancient Greek settlements (of Ionia and the Dorian Hexapolis), well-preserved Roman cities (in the imperial provinces of Asia, Lycia and Pamphylia), indigenous kingdoms (Phrygian, Carian, Lycian), as well as sunken cities and shipwrecks. Lectures will cover the history, mythology, religion, and art history of Asia Minor, as well as techniques of terrestrial and underwater excavation. Students will explore over 30 famous archaeological sites, with an end-of-course tour of historical Istanbul. The abundance of archaeological material in western Turkey provides an opportunity to study the wide range of archaeological approaches being used today, as well as to ponder controversial interpretations of Classical, Near Eastern, and underwater archaeological discoveries.
