Ani security fence

The Ani security fence was constructed in 2002 around the uninhabited medieval city of Ani which is situated in the Turkish province of Kars along the border with Armenia.

The fence, supported by concrete posts that are embedded into a concrete strip foundation, is about 3m tall and consists of a wire mesh fence topped with barbed wire.

After the construction of the fence, the local villagers were forbidden to graze their livestock within Ani which has led to the ground become rapidly overgrown with vegetation. Opponents to the fence claimed that the construction process gave scant concern to the importance of the site and caused considerable damage to archaeological remains.
