The immense stone columns at archaeological sites may be the first thing you notice, but, then, the tiny bits of stone and glass forming the ancient mosaics draw you in for a careful study. Mosaics are a clear depiction of those ancient times. Animals, flowers, everyday scenes, myths, legends, and decorative patterns inform us about how people lived way back then.
Mosaics date as far back as about 4,500 years – so the ones we saw in Turkey and Greece are relatively “recent” – all less than 3,000 years old. Here are few of the many we saw.
