Shipwrecks & Pirates

The Marine Archaeology Museum in Bodrum is a wealth of information and understanding of the coast of Turkey. The fort of Bodrum is all turrets, knights and winding roads to trick pirates. Some of these engravings are the graffiti of knights circa 1492. There is rumour of a village that cannot be seen from water, where the villagers would flee to when ferocious pirates came to town. Now a ghost town, although I did not get to see, it sounds intriguing & steeped in the history of the area.

Various shipwrecks have revealed many a treasure of copper, glass, posts, ceramics, golds, seals, beads & boats!
