    Project Details


    Since the heyday of Troy in the late Bronze Age, Gallipoli and the Dardanelles have been a scene of endless conflict. At the cross-roads between Europe and Asia, the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, the area has seen armies and navies come and go on the surface, but remain long afterwards in the imagination. Forgotten behind all this activity have been the local inhabitants a mix of Thracians, Greeks and Turks, meeting at a contested boundary, living in shifting settlements under diverse administrations. Our project will investigate the regional history of Gallipoli over the longue dur e of the last three thousand years, analysing the linkages between settlement, war, and memory.
