Abstract:

The emergence of the Hittites from Old Testament lore is the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century. From the 15th to the 13th centuries BC the Hittites were a major force in the near east. At its height their empire stretched across Anatolia and most of Syria, and their influence was felt far beyond these territorial boundaries. Through close analysis of cuneiform and hieroglyphic texts, O. R. Gurney is able to give us a detailed picture of their lifestyle, laws and customs as well as their military achievements.
