This year at the conference we will once again be holding our Archaeology Fair, where we bring together, in one bustling marketplace, a varied group of people whose businesses will be of interest to our subscribers and delegates to the conference. Dedicated booksellers, archaeology tour specialists, and companies working within the technical field of archaeology will all be there. We hope you’ll enjoy what they have to offer!
At the Archaeology Fair:
Turkish Culture and Information Office (Headline Sponsor)
Turkey has a rich cultural heritage spanning over 12,000 years. More than 20 civilisations — from the Hittites, Seljuks, Byzantines, Greeks and Romans to the Ottomans — have inhabited this vast country, leaving behind a multicultural patchwork of stunning architectural, archaeological, and religious gems waiting to be explored. Turkey is a country of unique historic and cultural wonders, 13 of which have been registered on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List, including the recently added sites of Bursa, Cumalikizik: the Birth of the Ottoman Empire and Pergamon and its Multi-Layered Cultural Landscape.
