Halfeti: The Sunken City

Halefti was an ancient Greek city on Turkey’s northern coast. Established around the 6th century BCE, it thrived as a trading hub influenced by Greek, Persian, Roman, and Byzantine cultures. Halefti lies submerged underwater, with ongoing underwater excavations revealing its rich history.

As part of the Cara Syria Programme November 2023 workshop ‘Programme Development and Assessments (2)‘, a visit to the Sunken City was organised, which provided a useful bonding exercise for Sham University faculty.
