Ancient Anatolia: fifty years' work by the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara
Roger Matthews, British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara
British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara, 1998 - History - 378 pages
Under the banner of the BIAA every corner of Turkey has been investigated, uncovered and published by British archaeologists; this book is a wonderful reflection of its work. From the Neolithic site at Catalhoyuk to the tell at Beycesultan, all of the BIAA's excavations are discussed by their original excavators. From the Pisidian survey to Clive Foss' epic trek through the medieval castles of Anatolia, generations of scholarly wanderings are accounted for. Object and archival research are not neglected: J D Hawkins describes his research into Hieroglyphic Luwian Inscriptions while J D Winfield presents Byzantine wall paintings illustrated in this book with colour plates. A wonderful collection of work beautifully presented at an excellent price.
