Reconstructing Perge in the Field

Archaeological excavations in the past seven decades at Perge have revealed an ancient Greek city filled with artifacts and statues dating back to the Bronze Age. Today, visitors can marvel at the ruins and towers that stand timeless in what was once a bustling city near the Taurus Mountains. Many of the artifacts from Perge have been relocated to the Antalya Museum, but on rare occasions visitors can find small pieces of pottery that lend clues to reconstructing the past. Professor Smith, an expert in ceramics and ancient pottery, recently took her Intro to Mediterranean Archaeology class to explore Perge, and students could not believe what they found.
