Nearly 7,000-year-old city unearthed

28 September 2011, Wednesday / TODAY´S ZAMAN, İSTANBUL

Archaeologists announced the discovery of an ancient settlement on the shores of the Dardanelles yesterday, estimating that the recently unearthed ruins may be roughly 7,000 years old.
 

If true, such claims would make the settlement one of the oldest in the region, outdating even the ancient city of Troy, an ancient center of Mediterranean trade. Rüstem Aslan, assistant president of the Troy Excavation Committee, stated that the ruins are located near the town of Erenköy in Çanakkale province, and lamented that the slowly rising sea level has already claimed as much as 90 percent of the site. Extensive ruins of the city nonetheless remain, and archaeologists have uncovered pottery and other artifacts that hint the city may have once been an ancient trade hub.

Aslan explained that the discovery of the settlement will be a crucial piece in interpreting the Dardanelles´ prehistoric past, about which archaeologists still know very little
