The Assos Excavations

Located on the Aegean Sea in Turkey, the ancient city of Assos was quite a bustling metropolis thousands of years ago. It also happens to be the site where the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) had one of their very first excavations. Today, the site is overseen by archaeologist Nurettin Arslan of the University of Canakkale. This interactive online feature takes visitors inside their work, and it's a revealing portrait of this sometimes overlooked site. Visitors can start their tour by looking at an aerial image of the site, and they can then proceed to look over the other nine sections of the excavation. Along the way, visitors will be able to view photographs of a temple built to the goddess of Athena in the sixth century BCE and take in a 360 degree view from the acropolis at Assos. Additionally, the site also includes three other 360 degree views, including those of the area's primary theater and the monumental west gate.
