Photographic Collections

The archives of the Institute hold more than 40.000 pictures in various formats (slides, negative films, prints) that depict archaeological monuments, sites, archaeological artefacts, landscapes and people in the region that is today modern Turkey. The oldest part of this collection goes back to the beginnings of the 20th century with the photographs of John Garstang's surveys of Hittite and Classical Anatolia, while the bulk of the pictures has been taken from the '50s to the early '90s mainly under the projects sponsored by the BIAA.
