The study is based on the documents of Hermann Eggert currently kept at Berlin. Assistant to Hirschfeld during his travel in 1847, Eggert kept a diary and made drawings, which complement to a great degree his preliminary report he published about his journey. Besides, in order to evaluate the results of Hirschfeld’s travel, other travelogues about the research history of the region written since 1801 had to be compiled. The following chapter covers the research history from 1874 to 1922. Research at Perge came to a halt from 1922 through the end of the WWII. Excavations initiated by Mansel in 1946 and continued by İnan and Abbasoğlu are also mentioned briefly. The study concludes with efforts to shed light onto the dark parts of the two-century-long research history of Perge and these were presented briefly with critical approach.
