Facial Reconstruction of Sagalassos Man
Sagalassos was situated in the ancient region of Pisidia, named after its inhabitants, the Pisidians, an ethnic group descendent from the Indo-European Luwians. The ancient region of Pisidia corresponds with the present-day Lake District in the Turkish provinces of Burdur, Isparta and Antalya.
The archaeological site of Sagalassos is a very important settlement located in a magnificent mountain landscape, 7 km north from a village named Ağlasun (province of Burdur, south-west Turkey). Since 1990, the University of Leuven (Belgium) has carried out an interdisciplinary archaeological research program that studies >1000 years of uninterrupted human occupation in Sagalassos, concerning all historical aspects of daily life from architecture, to trade and its mechanisms and environmental conditions.
