“Ancient fossils moving to new museum in Turkey’s Çankırı”

May '16

Ancient fossils dating back 8.5 million years, currently on display at the Çankırı Culture and Tourism Directorate, are set to be moved to the new Çankırı Museum. In 2014, officials decided to turn a building, first built as a government institution at the start of the 20th century by Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II, into a museum. The building had served as the Çankırı Courthouse for many years until the court was relocated.
