The workshop “Cultural Heritage on the Road: the caravanserais of Turkey” was supported by the Abdullah Gül University (BAP Funding), The Barakat Trust – London, CIERAM (International Association for the Study of Roads and Caravanserais) and EVCAU laboratory of the National School of Architecture Paris Val de Seine.
The objective of this event was to represent a fundamental assessment of the research on caravanserais by taking stock of the studies and of the restoration and preservation work that has been conducted in the last decades on the caravanserais of Turkey. It also aspired at providing useful directions and ideas for future research on this topic.
For the first international workshop hosted in the Abdullah Gül University’s new building, we were happy to welcome scholars and students coming from 8 different countries.
The positive results of the workshop encourage the pursuing of research on caravanserais as a promising and interesting research field both from a historical, archaeological and architectural point of view.
