Photographer's Note

My apologies for the poor, uneven lighting, but in an archeological museum, no flash is allowed, as UV rays fade the colors. Sadly, an increasing number of places now ban photography of any kind, due to the 20 somethings ignoring the 'no flash' rule, or simply too inexperienced to know how to switch off auto-flash. I was particularly interested in the original exhibits here which were removed from the mountaintop citadel I visited overlooking Adilcevaz on the north west shore of Lake Van. The artistic style seems unique. The soldiers at the top look similar to the ancient Greeks. Uratu was centred on Lake Van in eastern Turkey, between the Black and Caspian Seas and existed between the 9th6th centuries BC. It was ultimately overwhelmed by the invasion of the Iranian Medes in the 6th century BC. These tiles are in remarkably good condition for their age. Taken in the incredible Anatolian Ancient Civilisations Museum, which is not to be missed if you are ever in Ankara.
