The Hittite Empire

The Now-Extinct Hittite Language Was Spoken In Anatolia. Where's That?

A quick Google search answered this for me, of course. Anatolia is modern-day Turkey and the Hittite Empire lived in Hattusa during the height of the Bronze Age, in 1300 BC.
We don't hear a lot about this period of history; instead we hear about the Ottomans, the Romans, the Egyptians. But the Hittites had their own language that existed for centuries, and was similar to the Egyptian's famous hieroglyphs.
