Yenikapı archaeological excavations - Summer 2008

Shot by a tourist, this is a view from the east, looking west from Namık Kemal Cd. over the Yenikapı excavations. Over 35 shipwrecks have uncovered in the former Theodosian Harbor of Constantinople from the 7th through 11th centuries, including several galleys. Other remains include a Christian Basilica and the oldest occupation yet discovered in Istanbul dating to the Chalcolithic.
