Caption: Yenikapi archaeological site, Istanbul, Turkey. This site was discovered in 2004 during excavations for the Marmaray rail tunnel under the Bosphorus. Over the next five years extensive excavations made this one of the largest archaeological sites in the world. The main discovery was the fourth-century Byzantine port from the time of the emperor Theodosius. The wooden posts (left) would have supported a wall or quay. The oldest finds were Neolithic remains from 8000 years ago. Photographed in 2009.
