Grassy hills neighbouring the ancient city of Ephesus, conceal the remains of a Neolithic settlement dating from 6000 B.C. Excavations have revealed tools of stone, obsidian and bronze among walls of sun-dried brick. The early settlers survived by hunting for birds and animals, as well as fishing in the nearby Aegean Sea. This majestic city contains the biggest anthology of Roman relics east of the Mediterranean. The most illustrious temple of Ephesus was the cult hub for worship of Artemis (Diana). Pilgrims throng to the temple to pray, and the many-breasted figurine built in her temple was one of the Seven Wonders of the old world.
