The archaeological findings in the Kula-Salihli UNESCO Global Geopark include many artefacts made of clay, mostly from the Roman period, including Hellenistic and Prehistoric periods. These artifacts show that pottery techniques in the field reached very advanced levels in ancient times. The tradition of pottery making for centuries is maintained by more than 100 households in Gökeyüp. In Gökeyüp, where old techniques are still used, pottery-eyed gneiss is obtained by grinding the bedrock.
Geoparks are special nature conservation areas, where different or the same type of geological heritage of international importance are located, managed and planned. Elements that explain the formation of the earth's crust, representatives of a known event, rare or extremely large formations are defined as geological heritage.
