Photographer's Note

Everyone has heard of King Midas. The tomb / tumulus of his father Gordius is across the road from this archeological site known as Megaron 1 & Megaron 2. They date from 750 BC & the mosaics might date from the 8th century BC, making them the oldest known in Anatolia, together with Til Barsip in Syria, and Arslantas, also in Turkey, but not strictly in Anatolia. The latter 2 date from the 9th century BC. I might load a couple of workshops later. Oh, & it's very rare to see an archeologist on site as depicted here. Looks like painstaking work assembling the jigsaw puzzle of fragments.
