Living Amid the Ruins is a project led by the British Institute at Ankara (BIAA) which implements an innovative approach to the use of archaeological heritage.  Focusing on the region of Pisidia in southwest Turkey, the project seeks to understand the relationship communities have with their local archaeological sites and then find ways in which archaeology can create social and economic benefits. One of these ways is the development of the Pisidia Heritage Trail, a long-distance walking trail which aims to bring tourism and jobs to the villages and communities of the area. SPI is assisting the project by providing expertise on what economic opportunities may be suitable for the communities of Pisidia and the paths to achieving sustainable businesses based on local cultural heritage.
