A monastery was discovered by illegal excavation

A statement ” Wherever you dig in Turkey, it is possible to come across an archaeological site or object.” is becoming true. As much as the illegal excavations are common in Turkey unfortunately.

An archaeological site ( a monastery) was unearthed during an illegal excavation in İzmir. In addition to a monastery, a mosaic was unearthed. It is thought that it is around 1500 years old.

It is obvious that Turkey is one of the countries that are lucky for archaeology science.
