Photographer's Note

Earlier this year the 2 bridges seen here were completely submerged under the rising waters of the Ilisu Dam, along with most of the historic town of Hasankeyf. A pity, as it dates back 12,000 years. There is a coffer dam around the old Roman bridge pylons at left where archeologists were excavating and sifting gravel for anything they could find before the waters began to rise.

And the Neolithic caves in yesterdays' upload taken 2014 looked like this in May 2019.
