Two pithoi burials in the Gümüşlük area excavated by staff from the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology

Bodrum Museum have performed a number of “rescue” excavations of tombs and burials around Gümüşlük, but to date I have never managed to find any of their reports published online.


  1. I've just found your blog via google+. I used to rent out Nuri and Gulsum apartments in the 1980s and 90s so know exactly where the Balcony is. I look forward to reading more.

  2. I envy you visiting in the 80’s.

    I was first introduced to Hera, the Özaşkin family and the village in 98 and have been back most years since then.

    We are working on a page for the “Lelegian” Wall. I came across a paper presented by Prof Şahin where he proposes a much earlier date for the wall which, if proven, pre dates Mausolus’ Myndos.
