Virtual reconstruction of the Curetes street in Ephesus, Turkey | 2017

This street took its name from the priests who were called as Curetes later. There were fountains, monuments, statues and shops on the sides of the street. It was an important processional way to the Artemision.
The rendering of the street will illustrate the Ephesus part of the book series ‘La aventura de la arqueología’ from Tecam, RBA, National Geographic.

    This really helps to visualise what the town would have looked like originally. Especially with the colour that they used so liberally. We visited Ephesus in 1988 and again in 2013. We saw big differences in the amount of work achieved by the archaeologists.
    This sort of reconstruction by drawings is excellent.

  2. This is an artistic view. Has nothing to do with archaics.
    Visited Ephesus 2 times in the past, I’ve noticed that they left columns upside down.
    Maybe the sultan takes it all.

  3. I was there as a kid in the early ’60s when everything was underground and then again last year with the reconstructions they have done in the past 50 some years and that was night and day. This virtual image really adds another layer and level of understanding as to how it looked.
