Turkey’s ancient cities in a new guide book
ISTANBULA new book from Yaşar Yılmaz, “Ancient Cities of Turkey,” has provided a comprehensive overview of 118 ancient cities located in Anatolia and Thrace.
The ancient cities outlined in the guide, published as two separate books in Turkish and in English, are presented to local and foreign fans of history and archaeology in the form of short but satisfying texts, accompanied by photographs, current maps and road descriptions.
In addition to significant structures that form the core of the city such as the market place, fountains, theaters and baths, there are also historical personalities, social, cultural, economic and political characters. The 196-page book was published by YEM Publications.
