Yenikapı Wrecks Stopping the Marmaras
Here is the story of the Yenikapı Shipwrecks, which attracted the reaction of Prime Minister Erdoğan for delaying the Marmaray Project.

The Marmaray Project, the world's deepest seabed tunnel, built on the floor of the Bosphorus, one of the world's busiest trade lines, counts the days for opening.

It can be said that there are few days left for the completion of the giant project. Marmaray, which will unite Istanbul's existing suburban system from the bottom of the sea, is planned to open on October 29, Republic Day.

At the beginning of the project in 2004, it was aimed to be completed and opened as quickly as possible, but something unexpected happened. The giant project, which contains many "best" in terms of construction techniques and engineering, also caused the awakening of another giant.

A port unearthed during the construction excavations initiated for the giant station to be built in Yenikapı, and nearly 40 thousand artifacts unearthed with ongoing works have changed the history of both Istanbul and civilization.

Known for its existence by historians, but not yet found, Theodosius Harbor has also provided scientists with extraordinary insights into the development of shipbuilding techniques and technology.

“Pottery”, which came to the fore with the speech of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is among these thousands of works.

The documentary Yenikapı, prepared by the famous author, archaeologist and art historian Emine Çaykara, tells the story of the Yenikapı excavations carried out by Istanbul University and the shipwrecks that changed history.
