Our day started with a history lesson. The subject: Ancient Civilizations. The historic city of Troy, as mentioned in "The Illiad", is located in Western Tureky near the Aegean Sea. The archaeological site contains ten different cities throughout time built on top of each other. We took a team photo in the remains of the amphitheater.
The team boarded a ferry from Çanakkale to the European side of Turkey to begin collections on the way to Istanbul. On the boat Jordan made some fast friends with a Turkish high school students.
At the last stop in the field, Evan, Ali and Jordan pose with our trusty Dacia rental car. Tuesday we leave for Armenia. Ali Dönmez was our constant companion along the trip through Turkey and the work could not have been done without his help. Thank you Ali!
