 Introduction: The Oxford Handbook of Ancient Anatolia

Show Summary Details


This introductory article presents an overview of the current book. The early years of the twenty-first century mark roughly a century of serious scholarly study of ancient Anatolia, and this book represents a synthesis of current understanding at the end of this century of scholarship. It documents close to ten millennia of human occupation in Anatolia, from the earliest Neolithic to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BCE. The book is also defined geographically, rather than by a culture, ethnic group, language, or polity. A brief description of its five parts is presented.

Keywords: ancient Anatolia; Anatolian scholarship; Neolithic; Alexander the Great
