It’s got to be said that we feel very privileged to be able to watch the developments around the excavation and restoration of an ancient theatre so close to where we live.

At the time, we could see nothing more than a bit of wire fencing and a closed off road, but it was exciting all the same.
Then, a fortnight later, we posted photos of an already different-looking Telmessos Theatre. Scrub had been cleared and the site looked huge. A couple of days ago – the beginning of November – we decided to return to see what, if anything, looked different.
