Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of ancient Anatolia, then pay attention....

What sparks curiosity about ancient Anatolia, which makes up most of modern-day Turkey, in the minds of history lovers is the diversity of its peoples throughout its territories and time. This audiobook seeks to present the most current view on the events that unfolded through the centuries of the Bronze and Iron Ages of Anatolia. The listener can follow the rise of some of the most famous empires in the world, as well as learn about the circumstances that led to their fall. From early settlements of nomadic tribes to the creation of vast empires, Anatolia changed its face numerous times throughout history. Not just territories and kingdoms changed, but the people inhabiting it also did so as well, in their language, culture, and religion.

Even though they were faced with a lack of evidence for certain periods of ancient Anatolia, or for certain peoples, historians seek to accurately paint the picture of the lives in all the various kingdoms of Anatolia. This audiobook follows the Hittite Empire in its rise and fall. It discusses the Arameans and the influence of their culture on the civilized world, as well as the influence of the Luwians and their dispersion throughout Anatolia. Even if they were never able to organize a united Luwian Empire, they changed all the kingdoms they came in contact with. The effects of this ancient civilization can still be felt today as certain dialects of the Luwian language still exist in Anatolia.

Useful, or incredibly educational work. It is all of those in implements, with top learners in various facets of Anatolian studies giving valuable summaries of the subtopics they were tasked with managing and offering perhaps even more valuable lists of each topic,

Just a regurgitation of battle dates

No context, archaeogenetics, or cultural insights. Same type of boring details presented in a high school history class.

The fascinating peninsula known as Anatolia.

Anatolia is home to early complex societies and great empires and was the destination of many migrants, visitors, and invaders.

Great

A very educational history of the Hittites. The history of these ancient peoples showed how advanced they were associated with some of the other ancient people.

This is an informative audible about the Hittites,

Most known as the opposes of Israel in the old evidence and the Torah. From this audible, you will learn about where did they originate, how did they grow their kingdom, who were their famous peers, what were their meaningful performances and much more. I hope you must find this book informative.

it's a great book

All the more interesting, since the topic matter lies at the intersection of so many relevant topics, it led me to tie together what was earlier separate or fragmented fields of thought.

Comprehensive and understandable ...

Though as always, don't let your enthusiasm over these concepts stop you from being mindful that there's always another perspective.

Amazing

Anatolia (what is now Turkey), called by the Romans Asia Minor, had several different cultures in the past, even before Greece and Rome.

Good Introduction

This is a great introduction to the history of ancient Turkey. Unlike most books by Hittitologists, this also covers the period during the height of the Lydians, and the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
