The remains of an ancient port appeared on a shore in the Aegean town of Burhaniye when the seawater withdrew due to seasonal tides.
The 2,500-year-old port remains are part of the ancient city of Adramytteion, experts said. Hasan Sezer, a local of Burhaniye, said the remains appear at the same time each year. "When you row around, you feel like a part of history," said Sezer. "We must preserve our historical heritage."
Excavation work has been ongoing in the ancient city of Adramytteion for 20 years. The work focuses on a big change, which dates back to 500 B.C., and the necropolis that belongs to it.
Among the important findings so far are pieces of frescos, and a mosaic of a peacock on a wall. Most findings are exhibited at the Ören Open Air Museum.
