One Fine Day in Troy

While the project focuses on the archaeological excavations of the ancient city of Troya, which dates back to 3500 BC, from the eyes of archaeologists for 150 years, it also shows how things are progressing and daily routines in the Troya Museum located right next to Troya Örenyeri. It presents the background of the museum and excavations, which cannot be seen by visitors, in all its naturalness.

Within the scope of the works carried out in cooperation with the Troy Museum and the Troy excavation, the work, which is a narrative of a day lived in the museum and the ancient city of Troy, was presented to the memory of all excavation teams and Museum staff.
