*Study Tour: Ancient Cities of South-West Turkey*
*Centre for Late Antique Archaeology, University of Kent*

Dr Luke Lavan is organising a study tour of the Ancient Cities of South-West Turkey for 6 days from the 15th to 20th April 2013. We will consider all periods of classical urban history, but have a special focus on late antiquity.

We will be visiting the following archaeological sites (subject to contingency): Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Patara, Arykanda, Myra (Saint Nicholas), Andriake, Chimaera (Olympos), Perge, Sagalassos, Hierapolis, Aphrodisias, Ephesos, Priene, Herakleia.

The cost of the trip (which is offered at cost price) will be approximately 500 GBP (depending on the exchange rate) and will include the flights from London Gatwick (we travel on the same flights), hotel (shared rooms, no singles), transport in Turkey, site tickets, and some meals.

A slide show of some of the sites we will visit is available at

You should be a third year undergraduate or post-graduate student, with an established interest in classical antiquity or the early medieval period, interested in continuing your studies. This trip is open to students at any university in the UK or abroad.

To secure a place please write to Jo Stoner ** before Monday 18th of February outlining your interest in the subject and enclosing a CV.
