TURKEY: THE LURE OF THE EAST 16 MAY ­ 04 JUNE 2009 From the vibrant green of Turkey’s lush Black Sea coast, through dense pine forests and hidden valleys, this tour encompasses some of the most dramatic scenery in the world. But even more striking are the layers of civilisation that have been revealed here, and the tour will include a visit to Gobleki Tepe, where there is evidence of substantial settlement apparently dating back to c9000BC, so 2000 years before the earliest levels at Jericho. Other centres visited include Trabzon, Erzurum, Kars, Dogu Beyazit, Van, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Antakya and Adana. Tour is led by Rob Lovell.
