Title: Emilie Haspels and the Fortresses and Monuments of the Phrygian Highlands
Author(s): HEMELRIJK, J.M.
Volume: 89 Date: 2014
The starting point for this paper is the publication of I am the Last of the Travelers by C.H. Emilie Haspels, with contributions by Halet Çambel (second revised and enlarged edition), Istanbul, Archaeology and Art Publications, 2012. This paper consists of three parts: Part 1 is a review of the book - an autobiographical report edited with great care and expertise by Dr. Dietrich Berndt - in which Haspels describes the excavation of Midas City and two survey expeditions in the Phrygian Highlands (1946 and 1950). In Part 2 the author will discuss some specific questions, sites and monuments in the Phrygian Highlands, to elucidate matters that have not been treated in Highlands, or are difficult to appreciate to the full in the enormous mass of the material of the two volumes. In Part 3 the author, who accompanied Haspels on the expeditions of 1953 and 1958 (of which the reports are lacking in the book under review, though an extensive written manuscript is known to exist), will give some further information on the archaeological work that led to Haspels’ masterpiece: The Highlands of Phrygia (1971).
