<![CDATA[Bridge over Tigris River, Hasankeyf, Turkey (Travel)]]> http://gallery.steam4me.net/index.php?album=travel&image=hasankeyf_1988-05_tk_17_06.jpg Bridge over Tigris River,  Hasankeyf, Turkey

29-May-1988: The only crossing of the mighty Tigris River in central Turkey is at Hasankeyf.  A new bridge spans the Tigris, but to one side the piers of the original bridge, built in 1116 AD, can be seen as silent sentinels in the fast flowing river.  The decking was built of timber, enabling it to be burned if an enemy approached.  I found it extraordinary that these piers had lasted 900 years - but then Turkey is full of wonderful historical (biblical even) artifacts that make you almost feel like you're travelling back through the pages of history books.
