Abstract and Keywords

This article traces the development of Anatolia's preclassical archaeology through several of its major threads, each following a chronological sequence. As with the archaeology of other regions of the Near East, discoveries have generally begun with late-period civilizations, whose remains often lie closest to the Earth's surface, followed by exploration of materials from earlier societies. In Anatolia, this sequence begins with the Hittites and other societies of historical times, before the development of knowledge of prehistoric communities of Anatolia. This historical sequence is followed, after a consideration of the Turkish contexts for the development of preclassical archaeology.

Keywords: Anatolian preclassical archaeology, Hittites, prehistoric communities, Turkey
