FROM ENTHRALMENT TO
A warm welcome to our new readers and welcome back to those of you that have been following us since our first issue!
“It often occurs when people see something new and excited, it surpasses the things they saw before, however during the five hour journey I made on horseback, I thought about the sceneries I saw in England, Germany, Swiss, Italy and Greece and I should say that I never came across such a spectacularly beautiful and long one before. This is a narrow valley thousands of feet high and formed incomprehensibly between the mountains and there’s only space for a river passing through the valley bottom”
Sir Charles Fellows, 1838 – 1843
With the latest issue of Actual Archaeology Magazine, we take a trip back to more than 5 thousand years ago to focus on a unique region named Lycia. Lycia, which was also known as “Lucca”, was discovered more than 200 years ago by voyagers, and influenced everybody with its magnificent ruins and fabulous nature. The excavations and research conducted in the region for years, revealed new ruins and every new artifact found in the region added new stories to the old ones, and a clear history of Lycia was constructed.
According to the written sources, “Lucci” or “Lucca” means “to glitter” in the Hittite language. The origin of this word in Latin is “lux”. It is also the reason that the Hellenes called the Lycians “Lycoioi”. The law of the world didn’t change and first the names were altered before territories and people.
What else is inside our new issue?
Meeting at its 37th session, from 16-27 June in Cambodia, the World Heritage Committee added four new sites from Turkey to the Tentative List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Together with them, the total number of heritages from Turkey reached 41.
The excavations conducted at “Balatlar Church”, which is in the city of Sinop in the Black Sea Region of Turkey, revealed important reliquaries. It is known that, a great number of churches belonging to early periods are dedicated to saints who sacrificed their lives for their religious beliefs and their relics are preserved in reliquaries placed in the altar or the crypt, together with a piece of the real cross of Christ.
A privileged tour in history will also charm you with an important Hellenistic capital: Pergamon.
