Not just us... that's a lot of boxes of finds
#1
Quote:The archaeological excavations started in 2004 to accommodate the Marmaray Metro Project are still uncompleted, while about 40,000 boxes of historical findings are under serious threat as they have been locked in depots.

Though the 8,500-year-old historical artefacts from the Neolithic period drew worldwide interest, the excavations were stopped due to lack of funding.

About 40,000 boxes of artefacts found in the excavations, which were carried out with the sponsorship of the Transportation Ministry State Ports and Airports Authority (DLH), were locked in depots and sealed.
