From the German Archaeological Institute, Prof. Dr. Felix Pirson

Prof. Dr. Felix Pirson said, “It is possible to see many ancient fields on the map. New information can also be integrated.We have added the work of the last 30 years. Archaeologists and tourists only look at the Acropolis. However, Bergama does not only consist of the Acropolis, it is a city. In the Hellenistic period, the city was built on a hill, but in Roman times it reached much wider borders. There was no research on this subject because these sections were not exactly shown on the old map. The new map has also been surprising to me. It contained a lot of information and links. It giving us much more accurate information. We preferred the open data system in the digital map. We shared the antique characteristics of Bergama with the whole world. We want this information to reach a large number of people, ”he said.

Prof. Dr. Pirson stated that they continue to work to add new data to the maps.

Stating that they have deepened their research around the tumulus and the Asclepion and examined the entire Bakırçay Valley, Pirson said, “We want to explain the city and its connections better. Where did the stones and metal they used come from? What sources were used? We conduct research on economy and ecology. Digital maps are of great importance to show the results of these studies. ” he spoke.

Interactive digital maps, are accessible on the website of the German Archaeological Institute.
