A few weeks ago we told you about the controversy generated with the translation of a Luwian text that explains the events of the end of the Bronze Age in the eastern Mediterranean, including the demise of the Hittite kingdom and invasions of the sea peoples.

This week, the Swiss geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zangger and the dutch linguist Fred woudhuizen, have published the documents in which they present the translations of the texts copied from a slab (which no longer exists) by the French archaeologist Georges perrot and that lasted in time thanks to James mellaart, archaeologist famous for discover Çatalhöyük.

As important discoveries of these translations, in addition to the fall of the Hittite people and the invasions of the peoples of the sea, we find hundreds of place names, which allows establish the political geography of western Asia Minor around 1200 B.C.

The conclusions and translations can be seen in the document "Rediscovered Luwian Hieroglyphic Inscriptions from Western Asia Minor" by Talanta, by the authors mentioned above.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
