Bo?azkale ("Gorge Fortress") is a district of Çorum Province in the Black Sea region of Turkey, located 87 kilometres (54 mi) from the city of Çorum. Formerly known as Bo?azköy ("Gorge Village"), Boghaz Keui or Boghazköy, this small town (basically one street of shops with a population of ~1,500) sits in a rural area on the road from Çorum to Yozgat. The mayor is Osman Tangazo?lu (AKP).
Bo?azkale is the site of the ancient Hittite city Hattusa and its sanctuary Yaz?l?kaya. Because of its rich historic and architectural heritage, the town is a member of the Norwich-based European Association of Historic Towns and Regions (EAHTR).
The ruins of Ancyra Ferrea are nearby. This city was part of the Roman province of Phrygia Pacatiana, and at an early stage had a Christian community. Its bishop Florentius was one of the fathers of the First Council of Nicaea in 325. He was also among the Eastern bishops who departed from the Council of Sardica and set up a rival council in Philippopolis in 344. Philippus took part in the Council of Chalcedon in 351, Cyriacus in the Third Council of Constantinople (680) and the Trullan Council (692), Constantius in the Second Council of Nicaea (787), and Michael in the Photian Council of Constantinople (879).
