When on Google Earth 62

I cracked WOGE 61 by identifying Delos (but failed to solve Paul's additional question - duh) so here is my challenge for WOGE 62:

If you can identify this site and its main period of occupation, then post your comment below. You can always join the new Facebook group to keep up to date with WOGE.

The Rules of When on Google Earth are as follows:

Q: What is When on Google Earth?

A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins?

A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get?

A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!


  1. OK, the only clue I can think of is rather asinine.

  2. Is that a meta-clue or the actual clue itself?

  3. Hi Heather,
    I know I promissed to give it up . . .
    but its's the mound of Yassihüyük lies on the right bank of the Sakarya River, Gordion, the capital of the Phrygian kingdom in the first millennium B.C, but starting c1500 bce ish, destroyed c700bce and rebuilt.

  4. Hi Geoff,
    Glad you are still with us on WOGE. And you are right, it is Gordion, so well done and back to you.
