These pictures were taken during a whirlwind eight days in Western Turkey,
starting in Bodrum in Southwest Turkey and working our way up to Istanbul. It was especially exciting to see many of the sites which were seminal in the early history of science, such as Cos, Samos, Miletus, the Meander River, Ephesus, Pergamon, Lesbos, Assos and Troy.
Jill Fankhauser, a historian of science, served as an excellent guide to these sites, and we gathered many pictures which should be valuable to her History of Science class. The actual images are large, and are linked to separate index pages listed below. We will have MUCH more to say about our experiences, but I must first say that the Turkish people are marvelously hospitable, warm, helpful and attractive. Their culture is among the most ancient in the Western world, and we felt privileged to be able to spend some time in this land with its fantastically rich history.
