Istanbul, the Straits of the Bosporus and the Dardanelles

Tue

February

28th

Two strategic waterways, the Bosporus and the Dardanelles, have for centuries limited Russia’s access to the sea. Istanbul, first founded by the Greeks around 660BC as Byzantium and later named Constantinople, sits at the southern end of the Bosporus. For over 2,500 years, this city has controlled entrance into the Straits.

History enthusiast and Shell Point resident Seth Mendell shares a series of slides that will transport the audience to Istanbul, through the waterways separating Europe from Asia, and down the Turkish Aegean coast to the ancient city ruins of Troy and Ephesus.

Advance sign-up for this $10 class is required by calling (239) 489-8472.

Presenter: Seth Mendell
Time: 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Price: $10
Phone: (239) 489-8472
