High voltage lines deface archeological site

Published on July 14th, 2009 | by Admin


High voltage lines have been errected without permission through an archaelogical site behind Kalecik Castle in Turkey.

“It is sad that towers for high voltage lines were erected in that 1,600-square-kilometer area where 2,475 ancient stones are arranged in a formulaic pattern,” said Rafet Çavu?o?lu from Van Yüzüncü Y?l University Archeology Department. The stones were discovered in 2004 and create ring-shaped and necropolis structures. The area is a first-degree protection area and there was no permission to install the towers, Çavu?o?lu said.
