A week of ruins

We've visited some of the wealth of archaeological sites in Turkey - seeing Ephesus, Nysa, Aphrodisias and Hierapolis in the past week. These are all ruins of ancient Roman or Byzantine towns. The excavations of the ruins have focused on the town centres, and each site had several well-preserved buildings.

Library (Ephesus)
Theatre (Nysa)
Visiting the four towns in quick succession has meant that we can see the similarities and imagine something of life 2000 years ago.

Council House (Aphrodisias)
Latrines (Hierapolis)
