Images of the lower and upper portions of the ancient fortress city of Archaeopolis/Nokalakevii with a focus on the fortifications and strategic features.
A small fort atop a presumably man made mound emphasised by a ditch surrounding it's exposed sides to the south. Offers good views to the north and west.
The site lies on a flattened hilltop with commanding views of the valley below, views which would have been even better from the main tower.
Khomakirde Castle is in a significant state of disrepair but remains of walls and towers exist above ground in places. Its position at the end of a ridge above a wide valley means it has impressive uninterrupted views in many directions.
Images primarily of main tower as site was so overgrown that ready access to the rest of the site was not possible.
Khorsi/Gaghma Sajijao castle is in a poor state of repair and hidden in dense woodland. Its only tower seems to have seen some recent looting.
Chakvinja castle is the well preserved citadel of a larger but poorly preserved fortified enclosure. These images are primarily of the citadel but there are some of a tower found below the citadel in the modern cemetery.
Photos of Kurzu Castle, its outworks, potential associated structures and the views.
Various images of remains of Osindale fort and it's immediate surroundings. Osindale currently serves as a small monastery and the images of the church are to be found as a separate item.
A limited snapshot of some of Diyarbakir's northern range of defences. Images primarily of one tower and it's interior. The northern portion of the city walls has seen far more deliberate destruction to facilitate the building of roads wide enough for the modern city.
