Alan Hall Memorial One Day Event

Welcome to the British Institute at Ankara

Turkey stands at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. The lands within its borders and the surrounding Black Sea region have seen centuries of fascinating history and pre-history. Their legacy: knowledge and lessons of potentially vital importance for all our futures.

The British Institute at Ankara – Alan Hall Memorial One Day Event
Turkey Ancient and Modern - a Day of Exploration
Saturday 11 October 2014, King’s College London – Strand Campus

Turkey is one of the most dynamic and distinctive nations of the modern world. Situated between Europe and Asia, the Black Sea and the Middle East, the peoples of Turkey have evolved a breath-taking sequence of historical cultures from the dawn of the Neolithic era until the twenty-first century. This event will showcase the splendours and complexities of Turkey’s culture and history, and the achievements of research promoted by the British Institute at Ankara, which has supported pioneering and ground-breaking work in the country since 1948.
