Study this fantastic repository of the relics of lost Hittite and Urartian civilizations, as well as ancient Roman, Biblical, Seljuk, Armenian and Crusader structures. Examine the earliest “temple” at Gobekli Tepe with its 12,000-year-old carvings, the colossal sculpture of Mt. Nemrut, the Abdurrahman mosque of Urfa, and the beehive architecture of Harran. Highlights include: Byzantine Trabzon’s Santa Sofia, the Sumeli Monastery, and the magnificent carvings on the Armenian Church on Akdamar Island, plus the ghostly ruined Christian city at Ani. At Gaziantep, the class will examine the Roman mosaics from Zeugma, the magnificent Ulu mosque at Dyarbakir and Ishak Pasha Palace, the Taj Mahal of Turkey! Kerrin Meis leads a tour to Eastern Turkey in May.
