Yerkapi Poterne
Turkey

Am höchsten und zugleich südlichsten Punkt der Stadtmauer von Hattuscha (= Hauptstadt der Hethiter, die von ca. 1600 bis 1200v.Chr. ein den ägyptischen Pharaonen ebenbürtiges Reich beherrschten) liegt auf einem künstlich aufgeschütteten Wall das Stadttor Yerkapi. Unter dem Tor führt ein ca. 70m langer Tunnel (=Poterne) durch den Wall nach aussen. Dieser Tunnel wurde in der Kragsteintechnik gebaut und anschliessend der Wall aufgeschüttet. Hattuscha und die hier gefundenen Texte (Tontafeln mit Keilschriftinschriften), gehören zum UNESCO Weltkulturerbe. Weitere Panoramen finden Sie unter www.derPanoramafotograf.com

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
