In the southern province of Turkey, Adana, in the once important ancient city of Misis, excavations are underway to discover the entirety of the windmills dating back to Roman times.

The ruins of the city are located near the Ceyhan River, 27 km east of Adana, in the place where the Silk Road used to run.

The excavations have been going on for four years. At that time, e.g. a castle, an ancient theatre or, in part, the aforementioned windmills. The last buildings date back to the 2nd and 3rd century CE.
