THE WITNESS OF HISTORY... ANATOLIA

 
by Artist CEMILE AKPINAR

Pamphylia: the land of many tribes", "Lycia: the land of light", "Cappadocia: the land of fine horses", "Cilicia & Pysidia: the stronghold of pirates" ... The cradle of civilizations... Anatolia...

Anatolia's known history extends back to the Palaeolithic epoch before written history. In Neolithic times, its people discovered the numerical system. They built the oldest city of history... They made the first written peace agreement... It was these people who built dams to rule nature; it was them who built ships to conquer the seas... They lived in the first republican states of the world... It was also these people who committed mass suicide in Xanthos, to show the whole world how to die for freedom. The myths and realities of the people of Anatolia found expression in their various arts...
