Rediscovering the Lost Empire of the ancient Hittites

This presentation on April 21st 2018, presented by The University of Queensland's Hittitologist Prof. Trevor Bryce, will investigate how, through archaeological evidence and language dicipherment, historians are beginning to understand this lost civilisation.  The ancient Hittites Empire once spanned from Turkey's western coast to the Euphrates river and south through Syria onto the Damscus borders.  However, we have known little about this civilisation until the last 140 years.  The purpose of the event is to engage with Friends' members and visitors through an educative presentation.  The presentation begins at 2.00pm and is followed with questions and afternoon tea, concluding around 4.00pm.
