Cornucopia marks its 30th anniversary with a special 160-page issue:
• Roman Roads: continuing their Turkish quest, photographer Don McCullin and author Barnaby Rogerson head south in pursuit of even greater treasures. Originally drawn by the lure of gorgeous goddesses in unsung museums, they discover moody Sardis, explore Ephesus, with its magnificent library, marvel at enchanted Aphrodisias and are awestruck by the mountain fastness of Hadrian's Sagalassos.
• Painter, caliph, exile: the intriguing life of Abdülmecid Efendi, by Andrew Finkel.
• A Grand New World: how the Balyans transformed Istanbul, by Philip Mansel.
• Patricia Daunt on the enigmatic genius who gave us Çatalhöyük.
• Two Tales of a City: Byzantium's rediscovery and its legacy, by Robert Ousterhout.
• The Silence of Snow: happy memories of a wintry Bosphorus village, by Jenny White.
• Tributes to the effervescent polymath Bob Chenciner, doyen of Dagestan.
• The Gentle Hunt: Andrew Byfield goes in search of rare Black Sea snowdrops.
