Kitap Hakkında


The Black Sea studies in Turkey have not attained the desired level yet. The Southern Coast of the Black Sea has been neglected in terms of archaeological studies. Along the coast, the ancient cities have been overbuilt by modern settlements and recent road constructions have destroyed the ancient remains. All sites mentioned in ancient sources as the lands of the Amazons and other local tribes who lived in this region are still a legend only. Although there are some surveys and fieldwork being carried out by Turkish and foreign scholars, there still remains a lot to be done. Studies of the Black Sea cover a large area, and concern the study of different cultural complexes as reflected in different peoples, states and countries. This volume shows recent field projects and studies in the archaeology and ancient history of the Black Sea and their relationship with the Mediterrenean underwater studies. Opportunities, as offered by this volume, to exchange views and present new evidence, are crucial to the subject. The volume contains 22 papers from Turkey and other Black Sea countries, segregated in chapters of Excavations & Surveys, Settlement Archaeology and Underwater & Maritime Archaeology. It is an obligation to congratulate personally all writers, and thank them all for their studies and contribution to this publication. I also would like to thank Davut Yigitpaşa, Hakan Öniz, Akın Temür as editors for their contributions. I believe that the volume will provide support to the education of young scholars, and enhance the studies related with the Black Sea region. – Prof. Dr. Sümer Atasoy


Black Sea has always been a marginal sea connected to an ocean which has many interesting features. The Turkish straits namely Bosphorus and Dardanelles connect the Black Sea to the Aegean Sea via Marmara Sea. Black Sea was sailed by Hittites, Carians, Colchians, Thracians, Greeks, Persians, Cimmerians, Scythians, Romans, Byzantines, Goths, Huns, Avars, Slavs, Crusaders, Venetians, Genoese, Tatars and Ottomans which makes it very rich historically. Deepwater archaeology shows that prehistoric settlements and ancient shipwrecks are exceptionally well preserved due to the absence of oxygen. TINA The Turkish Institute of Nautical Archaeology is proud and privileged to sponsor the 10th International Symposium on Underwater Research (ISUR), Black Sea Archaeology.
