The aim of the Hebros project is to document, study and publish the reconstructed paleoenvironements at the mouth of the Hebros river (Turkish Meriç) as well as of the ancient cultural heritage of the city of Ainos (modern Enez in Turkey).
The paleoenvironmental reconstructions are based on geo-bio-archaeological research, which started in Turkey in 2012, thanks to the German project SPP Häfen of the DFG. They have continued through the French projects Legecartas and the geoarchaeological mission of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Frédérique MARCHAND-BEAULIEU has made the 3D digitalization of the monuments and of the ancient objects, by photogrammetry. The models support the further study and publication of articles and of a corpus of the sculpted stones from Enez in the Edirne Museum.
