Trip to Turkey 22. Roman road from Paul’s time

tarsus road 800

This square section of land was in the middle of Tarsus and is completely fenced off.

This is a road that dates from the time of Paul.  I could only get a picture pushing my camera in between some chain link fence.

Its exciting to think the man who brought the gospel to Europe and beyond has a journey that began from this exact spot.

This archaeological discovery was found in 1993.
