Salut 2004

When the team of the IMTO first visited the area of Bisya and approached the hill of Salut, this looked just like a barren, rounded hill, with little evidence attesting to its ancient heyday. The only visible structure, other than a few buried stone alignments, were the foundations of the house of the modern land-owner’s grandparent. However, its massive shape, towering on the surrounding plain and detached from other hills, still transmitted to the visitor an echo of its past splendour and a subtle feeling of reverence, which undoubtedly fostered the start of the challenging adventure of investigating its history.
