Istanbul Archaeology Museums Chain Across Golden Horn
A section of the chain used across the Golden Horn during the 1453 siege of Istanbul as ordered by Byzantine Emperor Constantine XI, on display in the main building of the Istanbul Archaeology Museums. The Istanbul Archaeology Museums, housed in three buildings in what was originally the gardens of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, Turkey, holds over 1 million artifacts relating to Islamic art, historical archeology of the Middle East and Europe (as well as Turkey), and a building devoted to the ancient orient.
