The subject is concerned with the variety of Anatolian cultures that occupied the highlands of modern-day Turkey and the territories beyond between 1200 and 400 BC. It will encompass, among others, the worlds of Troy, Asia Minor (Ionia), Anatolia (Urartu, Phrygia, Lydia), Iran (Media, Persia) and Transcaucasia (Colchis, Iberia, Armenia). Located north and east of lowland Mesopotamia, these cultures provide a refreshingly new perspective on cultural developments in the ancient Near East in those centuries before Alexander the Great. Special attention will be paid to the relationship between these areas and mainland Greece, and how such links shaped the whole of the Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds.
