A Traveller’s History of Turkey offers a full and accurate portrait of the region from Prehistory right up to the present day. Particular emphasis is given to those aspects of history which have left their mark on the sites and monuments that are still visible today. Modern Turkey is the creation of the present century, but at least seven ancient civilisations had their homes in the region. Turkey also formed a significant part of several empires - those of Persia, Rome and Byzantium, before becoming the centre of the Ottoman Empire. All of these great cultures have left their marks on the landscape, architecture and art of Turkey - a place of bewildering facets where East meets West with a flourish. Richard Stoneman’s concise and readable account covers everything including the legendary Flood of Noah, the early civilisation of Catal Huyuk seven thousand years before Christ, the treasure of Troy, Alexander the Great, the Romans, Seljuks, Byzantines and the Golden Age of the Sultans to the twentieth century’s great changes wrought by Kemal Atatu¨rk and the strong position Turkey now holds in the world community.
