Summary

These archaeological guides are written by well known archaeologists with the thought that they might evoke the spirit of these places for those who are interested in remains of Anatolian civilizations. Illustrated with beautiful photographs, equipped with helpful plans and drawings, they are essential to travellers to Turkey.

“The southwestern part of Anatolia, in other words ancient Lycia is a less known region of Turkey. It was considered as duty for me to introduce this region which still preserves its natural beauty, and the heritage we inherited from the people who once lived here and developed a civilisation of their own.

As a person who has walked the Lycian soil for more than fifty years and made excavations in this site for thirty years, I want to share my knowledge with others and invite the humanity to preserve this natural and historical treasure and pass it on to future generations.”
