This is one of the first guidebooks for the general public to deal with the Byzantine and Turkish archaeology of an ancient town. Following 50 years of excavation by the Italian Archaeological Mission in close collaboration with the Turkish authorities, it is now possible to describe and illustrate the post-classical remains of Hierapolis of Phrygia. The book first explores a number of themes, from the changing environment to religion and agriculture, as well as discussing objects that illustrate day to day life in the medieval town.
An itinerary then guides the visitor to the site with detailed information on things to be seen, from the monumental remains of the cathedral, the shrine of St. Philip and the castle, to more humble tenth century Byzantine houses and the remains of early Turkish farms on the hills above the town.
The book concludes with a glossary and a select bibliography.
