|2012||Tentative list||Submitted as tentative site by State Party|JR Brooks (USA):
My hgusband and I were at this site just as the village was being inundated with the rising water of the Ataturk Damn The archaeologists were desperate to remove as much as possible to the local museum befor the water overcame the latest portion of the dig.
We were able to see beautiful mosaics and frescos in place , not in a museum.
So much was lost but people do need water. Was the damn a political act or a humanitarian act?
It was a very emotional exerience
