Turkey, with its cultural variety which is increasing in history, has an important structural group of monumental buildings, ranging from the caves to the first temple of the world, from city walls to castles, towers to obelisks, churches to mosques, madrasah, hospitals, hans and baths, fountains, tombs to mausoleums, palaces, mansions and waterside residences. This multicoloured cultural mosaic, which bears the traces of every level of the history, deserves to be called as “super power”.
Known as the cradle of numerous civilizations for thousands of years, Anatolia is one of the most important centers in history. It has hosted many different cultures, languages and religions, faced several migrations and battles, and witnessed the foundation and the fall of civilizations.
Aktüel Arkeoloji aims: firstly, to inform the general public about archaeological investigations, cultural treasures and the heritage of Anatolia; secondly, to share this heritage, which we accept as being of global value, with the whole world. To understand the world’s history, firstly we should explore the entire history of Anatolian civilizations. Beside scientific researches in an interdisciplinary setting, recent archaeological excavations and the surveys conducted in Anatolia have been further extending the understanding of the archaeology and the cultural heritage of Anatolia.
