Urla Klazomenai Ancient City Olive Oil Workshop

The Klazomenai Olive Oil Workshop was put into production with a project developed on an area discovered during the excavation between 2004-2005 and where it was understood that olive oil was produced. The Klazomenai olive oil workshop, the oldest known olive oil workshop in Anatolia, dates to the 6th century BC. Thanks to the project carried out by Prof. Güven Bakır and Ertan Iplikçi, it was revealed how important olive oil was in the Ancient Period. Thanks to this museum, you can grasp the importance of olives, one of the three products that create culture together with wheat in the Mediterranean world. The other two products that create culture are grapes and figs.
