The Cultural Heritage Preservation Board did not need to preserve existing building foundations on site, and decided to remove the remains by making scientific drawings and records. Archaeological excavations continued under the supervision of the Museum Directorate.


In fact, these excavations brought new information to shed light on the history of Istanbul and especially the Bosphorus. As a result of the meticulous work of the archaeologists of the museum, it was found that there were structures with a neolithic period, and these structures were found in Urne type tombs as in Yenikapı archaeological excavations. For the first time around the Bosphorus this information was excited by archaeologists. It was a brand new discovery for Istanbul. Just as around the Bayrampaşa Creek in Yenikapı, there was a neolithic period building around Ihlamur Creek. Istanbul 6500 3000 and XNUMX'li between the historical gap will be completed with Besiktas said.

Pointing out that such excavations were covered in the past, Özdoğan said, “After the finds in Yenikapı, a gap had emerged in the history of Istanbul. There was a time we didn't know. Now we will fill this gap with Beşiktaş. I was incredibly excited. Being in the center of Istanbul like Beşiktaş is a great discovery. Circular structures are typical Thracian settlement style. We see this all the way back to the Iron Age. I guess about 4 BC. As finds continue dating certainty kazanwill do.”

Historical discovery in the Bosphorus

Interpreting the photographs, Archaeologist Nezih Başgelen said: de The fact that there are no traces of the settlement of the prehistory in the Bosphorus, which is an important waterway connecting the Black Sea basin and the Aegean-Mediterranean world, increases the importance of Beşiktaş metro excavations. Previously, those found in Yenikapı, Fikirtepe, Pendik, Yarımburgaz and Ağaçlı showed that Istanbul has extraordinary values ​​in terms of civilization history. Round structures starting to appear in Beşiktaş metro excavations are interesting findings. The structure of the village belonging to the Neolithic period in Aktopraklık Höyük in Akçalar location in Bursa-Ulubat Lake in terms of the structure of round structure in the Marmara Region is interesting.
