Ancient Aphrodisias monitored with drones
Karacasu district governor Güher Sinem Büyüknalçacı said the ancient city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site last year in June and they have taken the highest level of safety protective measures.
She also said they have taken measures against illegal treasure hunters, adding that they found a 2,000 year old tomb, which was unearthed during illegal excavations last week.
“The cameras have night vision too. The vicinity of the ancient city is just as important as the city is. The gendarmerie teams do rounds every two to three hours in addition to drone monitoring,” she said.
