Course Description

Ancient Anatolia from the Hittites to King Croesus

Trinity College Dublin

This module provides an introduction to the ancient cultures of Anatolia (Asia Minor/Modern Turkey) and their history, archaeology and art. The diverse people of this important Mediterranean region are less well-known than their Near Eastern counterparts to the south and Greek contemporaries to the west, but equally impressive. Beginning with the Hittites and
covering kingdoms from the mountains of Urartu, to Phrygia, Lydia, and the Ionian coast, we will also examine the reality behind Herodotus’ tales of legendary kings, including Midas, Croesus, and Cyrus the Great.
