George's Guides

In August 1963, George traveled around Turkey with friends. From Milas to Magnesia, from Ephesus to Teos, George visited Turkish archaeological sites with the intention of writing a series of scholarly and informed guide books. In the following year and between 1967 to 1977, George spent much of his time writing and traveling. Lycian Turkey, his final volume, was published a year after his death.

After over 40 years since the first publication, George's archaeological guidebooks are still considered highly informative and essential companions to the archaeologically minded traveler.
