Great Ancient Civilizations of Asia Minor by Kenneth W. Harl

Great Ancient Civilizations of Asia Minor

by Kenneth W. Harl

Video About This Audio Book

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
12 Hrs.


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 has 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.
