Me in print

I have often contributed to all kinds of publications. Here follows a list of the majority of these. For a more up to date overview see the Me in print page on my site.

Children of Achilles

Children of Achilles. The Greeks in Asia Minor since the days of Troy. John Freely. J.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd. 2010. ISBN 978 1 84511 941 6. The cover has a picture I took.



Byzantium. The surprising life of a medieval empire. Judith Herrin. Allen Lane, an imprint of Penguin. 2007. ISBN 978 0 713 99997 6.


There seems to be a Polish version for which I did not grant permission to use pictures. For a Spanish (not yet out) and Japanese  (ISBN978-4-560-08098-6) I was asked and I did grant permission. Byzancjum
J.E. Lendon.Song of wrath. Basic Books, New York 2010. ISBN 978-0-465-01506-1. The picture on its front (left) is by me. It is a bronze from the Gaziantep Museum.

To the right Saladin and his time (in French) special issue of Histoire Antique et medievale, december 2010.

Another look atAnother look at the East and Southeast of Turkey. Kameel Ahmady (project developer) Union of Southeast Anatolia Region Municipalities. 2009. ISBN 605 60513 0 2 . The project has a website at and the book (that in June 2010 was not available in bookstores), can be downloaded as a (large) pdf at (in English, Turkish version also available). It may be wisest to download the pdf for one or more of the provinces. I used the guide in June 2010 when I made a trip to several of the regions mentioned and in my mind it is the best guide for the southeast that you might get.
