Hittite Landscape and Geography


In Hittite Landscape and Geography Mark Weeden and Lee Ullmann have gathered 28 specialist authors to present an up-to-date account of research on the Geography of Late Bronze Age Anatolia (second half of the second millennium BC) using information both from cuneiform texts and from archaeological excavation and survey. The study of texts and archaeology require different specialisms. This is the first time an attempt has been made to present a co-ordinated monograph-length view of Hittite geography since 1959, and the first time that any work has tried to balance archaeological and textual data for the same geographical areas. The result is a foundational research tool which will put scholarship on Hittite Geography on a firm footing for the future.
