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).
