BRAND NEW DISCOVERY

For the first time around the Bosphorus this information was excited by archaeologists. It was a brand new discovery for Istanbul. Just as around the Bayrampaşa Creek in Yenikapı, there was a neolithic period building around Ihlamur Creek. Istanbul 6500 3000 and XNUMX'li between the historical gap will be completed with Besiktas said. As it goes down, it is possible to say that very important information about prehistoric times will be reached.

4 THOUSAND THOUSAND

Özdoğan underlined that the findings of the Neolithic period are definitely present. Özdoğan pointed out that the excavations were closed in the past. Çeken After the findings in Yenikapı, a gap had been formed in the history of Istanbul. There was a time we didn't know. Now we will fill this gap with Beşiktaş. I'm incredibly excited. Being in the center of Istanbul like Beşiktaş is a great discovery. Circular structures typical of Thrace settlement format. We see this until the Iron Age. I'm guessing it was a 4 thousand. As the finds continue, the date will become definite. Bulun
Historical discovery in the Bosphorus
Interpreting the photographs, Archaeologist Nezih Başgelen said: de The fact that there are no traces of the settlement of the prehistory in the Bosphorus, which is an important waterway connecting the Black Sea basin and the Aegean-Mediterranean world, increases the importance of Beşiktaş metro excavations. Previously, those found in Yenikapı, Fikirtepe, Pendik, Yarımburgaz and Ağaçlı showed that Istanbul has extraordinary values in terms of civilization history. Round structures starting to appear in Beşiktaş metro excavations are interesting findings. The structure of the village belonging to the Neolithic period in Aktopraklık Höyük in Akçalar location in Bursa-Ulubat Lake in terms of the structure of round structure in the Marmara Region is interesting. It can fill the gaps between the mesolithic and bronze age in Istanbul. Da
