about

This book presents a revised model of the historical geography of Anatolia during the Old Assyrian Colony Period (c. 1969-1715 BC) based on topographical, archaeological and written records. It challenges traditional views of Anatolian geography by using arguments based on logistics, infrastructure and the organisation of trade, and suggests a new interpretation focussed on central markets, fluctuating prices and interlocking regional systems of exchange. The historical implications of this revised geography for Old Assyrian and early Hittite history and Bronze Age archaeology are also extensively discussed. The book contains translations and discussions of passages from hundreds of published and unpublished Old Assyrian texts and provides a comprehensive inventory of Anatolian toponyms, accompanied by numerous photographs and maps.
Gojko Barjamovic is assistant professor and co-director of the Centre for Canon and Identity Formation at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
