Geological and Archaeological trip to the Teke Peninsula of Lycia in Southern Turkey
March 30, 2022 - April 9, 2022
POSTPONED FROM APRIL 2020 now being run March 30th to April 9th 2022
Leaders: Professor David Bridgland and Alison Ure.
This successful and popular trip has been run 3 times previously by OUGS, and this will be the third time David has led it. A write up in the OUGS national newsletter September 2014 can be accessed through the OUGS website. The area covered is the Lycian Region of South West Turkey, an area laid down in the Cretaceous times and shaped by the closure of the Tethys Ocean thrusting ocean floor overland in two opposing directions. The trip has been extended by a day from the previous trips, to incorporate evidence of the recent discovery of a meteorite impact, creating the formation of Kaş Bay. If you have never visited Turkey before this is an excellent opportunity to discover the fabulous hospitality of the people, great food, fascinating cultural and archaeological history, along with an array of very interesting geological features. Oh and then there is the weather!!
