John Garstang’s Footsteps Across Anatolia

Admission is free.

ANAMED Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations, İstiklal Caddesi No. 181, Merkez Han, Beyoğlu, İstanbul


Specially extended until December 20.

John Garstang, a British archaeologist of the ancient Near East, is the subject of a new exhibition curated by Alan M Greaves at Koç University’s Research Centre for Anatolian Civilisations (RCAC). Garstang, who worked on excavations at various Hittite sites across Anatolia, made important contributions to the study of archaeology in Turkey and the Near East. Not only did he advocate for the use of photography as a way to record archaeological excavations, he was also the founding director of the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA).

Organised in collaboration with the University of Liverpool, which has systematically digitised and catalogued thousands of Garstang’s glass plate photographic negatives, the exhibition features photos from Garstang’s survey of Anatolia and North Syria in 1907 and archival materials from the Gartsang Museum of Archaeology and BIAA.

The book of the exhibition is available to Cornucopia subscribers post-free here.
