This study includes a revised model of the historical geography of Anatolia in the Old Assyrian Colony Period (c. 1969-1715 BC) that is based on topographical, archaeological and written records. The author challenges traditional views of Anatolian ...
geography by using arguments based on logistics, infrastructure and the organisation of the trade to suggest a new interpretation focused on central markets, fluctuating prices and interlocking regional systems of exchange. The historical implications of this revised geography for Old Assyrian and early Hittite history and Bronze Age archaeology are extensively discussed. This book contains translations and discussions of passages from hundreds of published and unpublished Old Assyrian texts and gives a comprehensive inventory of Anatolian toponyms with photographs and maps.
