Why Is The Skeleton In Kusadasi So Important?

Provincial Culture and Tourism Director Umut Tuncer and Honorary President of Kadıkalesi Mound Excavation, Professor Dr. Zeynep Mercangöz, conducted an examination at the church where they found the skeleton. Tuncer stated, “What actually turns a cultural structure into a tourist destination is the addition of certain elements that increase its attractiveness and charm. Kadıkalesi is a very rich destination in this sense. It is full of discoveries exciting us as we discover new mysteries at every point. Last month, we made a discovery of a grave from the 1300s. Inside the grave, we found a skeleton of a woman who is estimated to be about 1.63 meters tall.”

Kadıkalesi is an area that is with a small metropolitan area. Therefore, the discovery of such artifacts in various parts of Kadıkalesi enhances your tourist route ability. In addition to increasing the enjoyment of the tour in Kadıkalesi, the artifacts also become an important element in turning Kadıkalesi into a center of attraction for the future of Kusadasi and Aydin.

During the excavation, art historian Umut Kardaşlar, one of those who discovered the skeleton, said, “We thought this could be a water canal. However, when we opened it upon the request of our team members, we realized it was a tomb. According to the examination of our anthropologist professors, the tomb belonged to a woman aged 34-38 and measuring 1 meter 63 centimeters. It is not a common occurrence to bury a woman in a church. This woman must have made a significant donation to the church or been the spouse of a bureaucrat. That is why her tomb is in the church section of Kadıkalesi.”
