The Ancient City at Kerkenes in Turkey: New Technologies for Exploring Cities of the Past (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: The Ancient City at Kerkenes in Turkey: New Technologies for Exploring Cities of the Past
Abstract: Two thousand and five hundred years ago, an immense city was built in central Turkey by the Phrygians of King Midas fame. While it was only inhabited for around sixty years before it was destroyed with fire, it played an important role in the rise of the Persian Empire under Cyrus the Great. Over the past twenty-six years, the Kerkenes Project (kerkenesproject.org) has used new technologies alongside active archaeological excavation to explore this buried city. Our results have been a better understanding of what the people in the city did on a daily basis as well as how the city planning used to build Kerkenes can help us to build better cities around the world.

The Rise and Fall of Kerkenes: New Technologies for Exploring Ancient Cities (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: The Rise and Fall of Kerkenes: New Technologies for Exploring Ancient Cities
Abstract: For almost one hundred years the immense metropolis at Kerkenes in central Turkey has lain shrouded in mystery. Scholars have puzzled over this large pre-planned city apparently built and occupied by the Phrygians, of King Midas fame, for a brief period of time between the fall of the Assyrian Empire and rise of the Persian Empire around 550 BC. Over the past twenty-seven years, the site has been a showcase of new technologies being used alongside active excavation, useful in reconstructing the plan of the buried city and the activities and interactions of the people who inhabited it. Together, the latest excavations and technologies are shedding new light on what transpired in this ancient city in the years prior to its fiery destruction.
