Synopsis

Cats of Ephesos by Sabine Ladstatter, Lois Lammerhuber

Ephesos is one of the most important archeological digs in the world. For 120 years Austrian archeologists have been at work on this magical site in western Turkey and continue to bring up spectacular finds. In this place archeologists have succeeded like nowhere else to make academia and the public aware of the distant past. In this book, Sabine Ladstatter, who leads the Ephesos dig, and award-winning photographer Lois Lammerhuber present the world of antiquity from a very special angle. Cats are to be found almost anywhere around the ancient city. They live in a very special environment. Sabine Ladstatter explains the nature of this extraordinary relationship and Lois Lammerhuber followed the cats of Ephesos on a magical mystery tour through an antique world of temples, stones, theaters and private houses.
