Radio Expedition

Radio Expeditions Host Alex Chadwick has the latest report in the weekly series, "The Geographic Century." Today he talks about the discovery of Aphrodeseus, the ancient Roman city located in modern day Turkey. The late Turkish archeologist Kenan Erim began digging in the late 1960's and eventually found more than two thousand objects from the Anatolian civiliation that dates back to before the time of Christ. Many of those objects are made from the beautiful marble for which the region of Asia Minor is known.
