1,400-year-old ancient city found in Turkey

The remains of a castle and ancient city have been found in south Osmaniye province in Turkey.

Stating that the castle and the ancient city were surrounded by city walls and that they have found ceramic pieces, Associate Professor Füsun Tülek told the Anatolia news agency: “We found Umayyad ceramics dating back to the late seventh and early eighth centuries. We also frequently encountered ceramics from the ninth century. Yet, we did not find ceramics dating earlier than the seventh century. We are certain that the castle and ancient city belong to the early Islamic period.”
