The Black Sea coast is different from the rest of Turkey. For
more than 5,000 years Sinop, the central point on the Turkish
coast, has seemed more remote from the rest of the Anatolian land
mass than from Greece, Italy, Africa, the Crimea, Istanbul, and
Rome. How was Sinop connected to them? The Black Sea Trade Project
explores the perception of connectedness: how connected did people
feel to those in other upland villages, coastal villages, ports,
the big port of Sinop, and to distant shores? How did economic,
infrastructural, and political institutions bind local populations
to larger systems, and how were various institutional processes
situated in landscapes?
In this first volume from the Sinop Regional Archaeological
Project, Owen P. Doonan rigorously explores connection through
Sinop and its hinterland, from precolonial Greek settlements
through ages of empires, Roman, Russian, and Ottoman conquests to
the present day.
