Stories From the Hidden Harbor: Shipwrecks of Yenikapı

June 25 - December 25, 2013

One of the world’s most remarkable excavations is conducted at Yenikapı, at the harbor built by Emperor Theodosius. With the shipwreck found in May 2013, the number of shipwrecks in the collection has reached 37. These shipwrecks gave access to information that sheds light on trade functions of the Byzantine capital Constantinople as a harbor city, on vessels of the period used for sea transportation and their construction techniques, and on everyday life at the harbor. “Stories from The Hidden Harbor: Shipwrecks of Yenikapı” is an exhibition of finds from the Ottoman and Byzantine periods identified at Yenikapı and finds from beneath the Harbor floor from the Neolithic period.
