City of the Caesars Kayseri

City of the Caesars Kayseri is devoted to the city of Kayseri, described by Evliya Celebi as the city of the caesars. This account is not confined to the citys excellent climate, which Evliya attributes to the gentle breezes that blow constantly throughout summer and autumn, since the city lies beneath Mount Erciyes in the centre of Anatolia, open to the north and west but closed to the pernicious southwesterly winds, and to the marvellous cured beef and garlic sausage sent as gifts to rulers, but seeks to embrace its entire legacy and culture in a broad sweep extending from antiquity to the Seljuks, Ottomans and the present day, including its monumental and vernacular architecture, Mount Erciyes, stuffed dumplings and music.In City of the Caesars Kayseri the reader is taken on a step by step journey tracing the past of the city and province, from Erkilet to Tavlusun, Germir, Talas, Soganli and Gesi, recording all its memorable aspects not just in writing but in lavish illustrations.Fikri Kulakoglu has written about KültepeKanesh, Anatolias ancient international trading centre
