John Garstang’s Footsteps Across Anatolia aims to highlight the international contributions of John Garstang towards the study of archaeology in Türkiye and the Near East. He was one of the first advocates of using photography as a means of documenting procedures and findings of archaeological excavations. In Türkiye, Garstang was accompanied on his Anatolia Survey (1907) and Sakçagözü excavations (1908-1911) by his German assistant, Horst Schliephack. The result of over five years of research by The University of Liverpool, this book presents a series of short discursive articles about Garstang’s work in Türkiye and the Near East and a catalogue of newly digitized glass plate negatives from his 1907 journey across Anatolia. Garstang’s photographs are an irreplaceable record of the archaeological sites, landscapes and peoples of Türkiye and north Syria in the period of the late Ottoman Empire.
The book is available at Koç University Press and YKY stores.
