Organized with the cooperation of 11 institutions in total under the auspices of France's European Union Presidency, the Turkish-European Archaeology Days aims to introduce history buffs and enthusiasts to archaeological research backstage with an exhibition, book booths on archaeology and workshops for children. During the event, the “Thus Speaks Taram-Kubi: Assyrian Correspondence” documentary, produced by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and Netflix’s “The Dig” will be screened.
