Uncovering Yenikapi

You know how much I love history, especially from Turkiye (Turkey), and my luck,  coming to Dallas,  is the  Dr. Ufuk Kocabas, Director of Yenikapi Project.
Yenikapi project is one of the largest maritime excavations and surfaced during the metro 
construction. Remains of ships and artifacts from the 11th century port of the Roman empire in Istanbul is not the only finding; On deeper levels, a grave from neolithic times is found which changes the history of Istanbul.
