January 2015

Our 2015 programme got off to a flying start when John Wall gave his armchair tour guide: TURKEY, CROSSROADS OF THE CONTINENT. As on previous presentations he used Google Earth to reveal each site before showing slides on particular places of interest. Remains at Troy, Pergamon and Ephesus were each fully explained.

In showing the cruise route near Gallipoli, John spoke of this year’s commemoration of the battle there in August 1915, and that the only surviving ship from the campaign is in dry dock at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Following visits to Cappadocia, John went on to describe the Shipwreck Museum at Bodrum and the Attaturk Museum in Ankara, before closing with slides of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. An excellent appetiser for anyone planning to visit Turkey.

On February 27th a packed room was treated to a talk on the Romano-British Site at Flexford. This excellent review of recent events on the site was given by David Calow from the Surrey Archaeological Society.
