The plot, however, did not turn out well. A regional official discovered the fledgling rebellion and succeeded in capturing Basil alive without much issue. Basil was brought before the emperor for judgment. Considering the often-brutal crackdown on rebels, Basil was given a fairly light punishment. Upon his release, Basil in no way gave up his ambitions. Instead, he made the most of the situation and delved right back into his ploys.
He and his rebels successfully managed to storm and seize a stronghold called Plateia Petra. They used the conquered fort as a headquarters from which they pillaged the surrounding area. An imperial army was sent to hunt down the rebels and their charismatic leader.
Although Basil had fought well against local garrisons, he proved no match for the larger army sent to crush his revolt. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions.

Facing a declining population, a lack of opportunities, unemployment and serious health problems - due in part to the constant stream of pollution and smoke pumped into the air from the factory - Alaverdi faces many challenges to survive in the post Soviet era. For The Tale of the Copper Town I wanted to photograph the fragments of what remain, the people who live beneath the smoke, and discover what future there is for the copper town of Alaverdi.
