Archaeologists from around the world, who are specialized on Hittite civilization, will meet in central Turkish city of Corum, once the capital of 4,000-year-old Hittite Empire.
7th International Congress of Hittitology will be held from August 25th to 31st to research and promote Hittite civilization, a super power of its age.
Congress president Professor Aygul Suel said that hundreds of scientists from 17 countries, such as United States, Britain, Germany and Slovenia, would participate in the congress.
The Hittites were an ancient Anatolian people who established a kingdom centered at Hattusa in north-central Anatolia, today's Corum province, in the 18th century B.C. The Hittite empire reached its height in the 14th century B.C., encompassing a large part of Anatolia, northwestern Syria and eastward into upper Mesopotamia.
