Forgotten Kingdoms. From the Hittite Empire to the Arameans - Exhibition catalogue
The Hittite empire, the great rival power of ancient Egypt, dominated Anatolia and extended its influence over the Levant to around 1200 BC. Its fall gave rise to the emergence of neo-Hittite and Aramaic kingdoms in modern Turkey and Syria, heirs to the political, cultural and artistic traditions of the vanished empire.
The book invites us to rediscover the mythical sites of this forgotten civilization, including the majestic remains of the Tell Halaf site, located near the current Turkish-Syrian border.
