    One thought on “The Kingdom of the Hittites

    1. Monique Vincent

      reads like fiction in parts. does an excellent telling of the Hittites' history, but peeks in his section on the Neo Hittite Empire.

    2. Hugolane

      Bryce is quite up front about this being a political history, and so I can't accuse him of false advertising. He tells the story of the political and military ups and downs of the Hittite Kingdom well, but if you are looking for a book that will give you a glimpse of the broader swath of Hittite society, their myths and such this is not that book. Much of that seems to have to do with the sources, which not surprisingly for an age of scribes almost exclusively in the pay of kings focus on the de [...]

      For those interested in what we know of the historical Hittites this is an accessible, enjoyable read. Bryce does indulge in a couple of theories (about the origins of Troy and the influence of the Greeks, as well as the northern tribes he believes lead to the Hittites downfall), but they have some evidence to back them and are interesting to look at. Well worth delving into.

      Didn't have time to finish reading, but was interesting to skim through. I may do more research on this particular culture eventually- they seem similar to the Sumerians/Babylonians, but with enough differences to make me want to research. Saving the rest for when I have more time

      Kronoloji takıntısını aşarak anlatıyı temel problemler üzerine kurması sadece akademik değil ortalama okuyucuya da hitap eden bir lezzet vermiş. Filolojik kaynaklar ile arkeolojik veriler arasında kurulan denge ufak detaylar dışında itiraza yer bırakmıyor.

      A good overview of civilization that most people are unaware even existed. A little densely written at points, but very interesting.
