  • Meet the Carians

    From Issue 63
  • Troy Story 1: Lost and Found

    From Issue 60

    Overlooking the Dardanelles, a stark but stunning new museum opens a new chapter in the enduring story of Troy, next to Homer’s embattled city. With Troy, truth is ever elusive, but, as Barnaby Rogerson discovers, the experience is epic. Photographs by Don McCullin and Monica Fritz

  • The Oldest Temple on Earth?

    Barnaby Rogerson marvels at the mysteries of Göbekli Tepe

    From Issue 59

    Six millennia before Stonehenge, the dawn of the agrarian revolution came to the now arid Anatolian steppe – and with it came Göbekli Tepe, perhaps the first place of worship built by man. With its T-shaped columns and menacing animal carvings, it is an unacknowledged wonder of the ancient world. But who built it? And what went on here? By Barnaby Rogerson

  • Rough Journeys: George Bean and Terence Mitford

    From Issue 23

    For more than thirty years Terence Mitford and George Bean painstakingly identified and recorded the forgotten ancient sites of Turkey’s Aegean and southern shores. Their contribution to the preservation of the country’s archaeological heritage is incalculable, their guidebooks are legendary, yet the men themselves are unsung. Barnaby Rogerson, in this homage to his heroes, uncovers an extraordinary pair: a gentle giant and a man of steel

Photographs by Faruk Akbas
