The Crusaders passed through (and stayed in Bodrum), leaving a magnificent castle behind.  The castle houses a marine archaeology museum, as well as a potters workshop.

Ephesus was the largest city of ancient times.   Approximately 500,000 people lived here 2000 years ago - half slaves and half free.  Ephesus was originally a port city; but years of silting and earthquakes have taken their toll.  Ephesus is now about 16 km inland.
