The Roman city of Paphlagonian Hadrianoupolis was established by the 1st century BC and was occupied until the 8th century AD. Situated in what was the south-western part of the province of Paphlagonia, it is 3 km west of the modern town of Eskipazar. The site extends along the Eskipazar-Mengen highway, covering an area of 8 km (east-west) by 3 km (north-south).
Hadrianoupolis was situated in a rich agricultural area and controlled the principal western route from the Central Anatolian Plain through the mountains to Bartın and the Black Sea. The Archaeological Research Project of Paphlagonia, led by Dr Ergün Laflı, surveyed and excavated the site between 2006-2008.
The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Institute Staff Common Room (609) and all are welcome!
