Episode 206: The Mystery of Alashiya

September 23, 2021

So far we have explored the most well documented kingdoms and empires of the ancient near east: The Hittites, Egyptians, and Assyrians. We have demonstrated how complex the political, economic and military networks were that tied these various powers together in the region and how these powers made up one of the world’s first known global network. Now our story takes us to an unknown land and a little known kingdom. A kingdom whose origins and even its physical location are a hotly debated topic by scholars and amateurs alike. Our story today takes us to the ancient kingdom of Alashiya.

Sit back…

Relax…
