A Visit with a View to the Region’s Byzantine and Ottoman Histories

Gygaia Projects

Before the storm it was… Little did we know that our visit to the region in early March 2020 would be one of our last “free” outings. On the eve of COVID-19, we were lucky enough to spend a lovely few days with local partners in Gölmarmara to see a few sites of interest, especially those mentioned in Ottoman archival documentation on water management and pious foundations. Looking back now, the glorious days of sun over the green fields and snow-capped mountains seem like a dream.

Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
