Description
Professor Kenneth W. Harl offers 24 lectures focused on a region that has been key to human history since the birth of agriculture. The peninsula of Asian Turkey, known to the Greeks as Anatolia and to the Romans as Asia Minor, covers about the same land area as Texas. Anatolia was the home to the first agricultural communities and the Bronze Age empire of the Hittites, and it was the site of the legendary Trojan War. Throughout history it's been the crossroads of empires. The lectures emphasize the continuity and change of the successive civilizations of Classical Greece, Imperial Rome, Christian Byzantium, and the Muslim states of the Seljuk and Ottoman sultanates. Professor Harl has based these lectures on both a lifetime of academic study and decades of his own first-hand fieldwork at sites throughout Turkey. He is a delight and revelation to anyone who wants to discover how a first-rate historian judges interpretations of the human past.
