When on Google Earth 44

June 4, 2009

As Nigel solved When on Google Earth 43 (WhenonGE) at Looting Matters, we are delighted to present WhenonGE 44…

So once again here are the rules:

Q: What is When on Google Earth? A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it? A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins? A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get? A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

Be the first to correctly identify the site below and its major period of occupation in the comments below and you can host your own!

For a list of previous WhenonGE’s see the list on our blog post here and then you can follow the link in the comments to trace the sequence back to here… or join the Facebook group here….

So, without further to-do here’s WhenonGE 44:

    It’s Olympos, on the southern coast of Turkey between Finike and Kemer. Founded in Hellenistic period, with Roman occupation too.

    I found it by accident while idly scrolling the Turkish coast on GE, but after looking at the site for some minutes I remembered that I have actually been there!

    Well done Heather!!

    I was there myself, swinging out of the tree houses back in about ’97, a stunning spot!!

    It’s now over to you for WOGE 45.
