    • Synopsis
    • The Hittite Empire was a major force in the ancient Near East between 1650 and 1200 BC. With photography in historical sites and museums of Turkey, Syria, and Egypt plus on-location interviews with world renowned scholars, The Hittites traces the history of these people, while presenting a political and cultural picture of the Near East and Anatolia. Through the use of digital technology and dramatic re-enactments, key moments in Hittite history comes alive and the audience takes a journey back in time to experience what it meant to be a Hittite 3500 years ago.
      Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons, the film is based on the Hittites’ own words extracted from more than 25,000 Hittite tablets discovered in Anatolia.
