Edinburgh University Press

Based on the evidence of narrative sources on the disasters that struck Istanbul, building inscriptions and archival records, this chapter describes the kinds of symptoms that show how the Çemberlitaş Hamamı aged over time. It defines the various causes of damage, such as fires, earthquakes, hailstorms, and daily wear and tear. Finally, the chapter analyses the repair and renovation work done to its structure in greater detail.
