Mehmed AlkanMehmed Alkan is a specialist in historic languages and worked for many years with the late Prof Sencer Şahin of Akdeniz University, Antalya, on the Stadiasmus Patarensis, a monument listing the ancient roads of Lycia. As well as completing academic researches, Mehmed has walked and identified many of the Roman roads of the central Lycian region. He also is greatly interested in early Byzantine churches and has identified several new sites in the area above Demre/Myra. Since he is now teaching in Kahraman, he  has less time to devote to Lycia, but we hope to see him back on the old roads as soon as possible.
