Bosphorus – Waterway Of Importance From Ancient To Modern Times

The Bosphorus is a place of many legends. Jason and his Argonauts would have travelled through this sea-passage in search of the Golden Fleece. Achilles, Hector and Agamemnon  would have been familiar with it as Troy is but a short distance away. The Persians used it, as did the Romans. From Byzantium to Constantinople to Istanbul, the city there has had many names but its importance remains. The channel forms the border between Europe and Asia. So how much do you know about this storied body of water? If you watch the following presentation, you will surely know a lot more. Say hello to the Bosphorus, where even James Bond had fun (and escaped from the sea bed).
