Rescue excavation to unearth burial chamber in southwestern Turkey

A rescue excavation will be carried out following the discovery of a burial chamber during an illegal dig at the ancient city of Amos in Marmaris, southwestern Muğla.

Archaeological work in the ancient city of Amos will continue this year in a cooperative project between the Department of Archaeology of Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University (MSKU) and the Marmaris Chamber of Commerce (MTO). The surface research project will salvage the excavations in order to recover the tomb chamber as well as repair the ancient city’s walking track.

A surface survey study began last year and has so far revealed the ancient city was spread over a larger area and seems to be a bigger settlement than previously thought. The excavation of the tomb is set to begin in the upcoming days.
