An exhibition space is being prepared in the museum for approximately 1,800 years old apple mosaic in Amasya.
After the mosaic was unearthed, it was taken under protection in the museum depot. However, as a result of the works started last year and the activities that have been carried out for about six months, this mosaic and the mosaics around it go through the restoration and repair process.
After the restoration process of the missing pieces is completed, the mosaic will be presented to the Amasya Archeology Museum.
Governor Varol said, “Our Amasya is the city that has hosted many civilizations. Among these civilizations is the Roman civilization, which is important worldwide. We are talking about the 1700- 1800 year old mosaic. The fact that this mosaic has an apple tree reveals that it describes a city known as the famous apple in the past as much as the generations can remember. As the city, which has been identified with the famous cluster apple and eventually received its geographical indication and patent, we think that in our province, 1700- 1800 years ago, apple was an important tree and an important product showing that it was an important product. We believe that the visitors will show great interest to this work when it starts to be exhibited as a result of the works here. We hope that the operations here will end completely from the 4th month, especially when our touristic movement has increased a lot. ”
