    From Books Back Cover: The rediscovery of the ancient empire of the Hittites has been a major achievement of the last hundred years. Known from the Old Testament as one of the tribes occupying the Promised Land, the Hittites were in reality a powerful neighboring kingdom: highly advanced in political organization, administration of justice and military genius; with a literature .   19 Salvini and Vagnetti (n. 6), – On the other hand, Buchholz (n. 6), 22, has now identified the Hattušas sword as definitely Aegean in origin, but as a variant of Type E. Unfortunately, he presents no proof for this assertion, and a brief investigation by the present author revealed as many, if not more, problems with a Type E identification as with the Cited by: 6.

In the epic poems of Homer, the Iliad and Odyssey, the poet uses lots of different terms to refer to the many different groups of Greeks who fought the of other playwrights and historians did the same, too.

One of the most commonly used ones was "Achaean," both to refer to the Greek forces as a whole and specifically to people from the region of Achilles's. This book presents a comprehensive history of the Late Bronze Age kingdom of the Hittites, and the role it played within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world.

From their capital, Hattusa, in central Anatolia, the Hittite kings ruled a vast network of subject territories and vassalstates reaching from the Aegean coast of Anatolia through Syria to the river Euphrates.5/5(2).

The Hittites were a powerful civilization that controlled most of Anatolia in the second millennium B.C. Their language, written in cuneiform script on clay tablets, was recovered and deciphered in the first decades of the twentieth century, but scholars are still wrestling with the problem of placing the cities and countries named in their ancient texts onto modern maps.

The Achaeans (/ ə ˈ k iː ə n z /; Greek: Ἀχαιοί, Akhaioi) were one of the four major tribes into which the people of Classical Greece divided themselves (along with the Aeolians, Ionians and Dorians).According to the foundation myth formalized by Hesiod, their name comes from Achaeus, the mythical founder of the Achaean tribe, who was supposedly one of the sons of.

It argues that in the Early Iron Age bilingual poets transmitted to the Greeks a set of narrative traditions closely related to the one found at Bronze Age Hattusa, the Hittite capital.

Attarsiya was a 15th–14th century BCE military leader of Ahhiya. In the Hittite archives of circa BCE, he is described as a "man of Ahhiya", a country identified with the Achaeans and Mycenaean Greece.

The campaigns of Attarsiya, as well as his conflict with the Hittite vassal, Madduwatta, represent the first recorded Mycenaean Greek military activity on the Anatolian. The Hittites appear in the Bible as a Palestinian tribe. In fact, however, the author points out that their homeland has been discovered in the heart of the Anatolian plateau.

Hittite Online Series Introduction Winfred P. Lehmann and Jonathan Slocum. Hittite is the oldest recorded Indo-European language, but it had remained completely unknown during the period in which Indo-European linguistics developed because its records are on clay tablets that were excavated only at the end of the 19th century.

Several Hittite texts confirm that the Achaeans undertook a series of military campaigns along the coast and the islands of Anatolia. Moreover, it is clear that at least at the time of King Hittite Hattusili II (cc BC), the Ahhyawa, as the Achaeans are called in the Hittites texts, were a political and military force to be reckoned with.The levels of settlement on Hissarlik Hill go back to around B.C.

According to Manfred Korfmann's book, Troy and the Trojan it was "Greek colonists" who settled Troy VI (whose end we now date to about B.C.).

If this is true, the Achaeans and the Trojans were brethren.Itamar Singer's book is a treasure trove of knowledge celebrating the Hittites. It answers to the lack of a Hebrew book on the Hittites and their culture, which is one of the pillars of Western civilization.
