Near the village of Boğazkale (also Boğazköy is mentioned, Kale is fortress, köy is village, boğaz is mouth or strait) lies the Hittite city of Hattusha. During digs in 1911-1912 2500 clay tablet were found here, the royal archives. Study of the tablets led to the conclusion Hittite was an Indo-European language. Most of the major finds are in the Anatolian Civilizations Museum in Ankara, the clay tablets in a museum in Berlin. What one sees some massive defensive - or ritual - walls, and lots of contours of what is indicated as temple I, temple II and so forth. People lived here even before the Hittite invasions around 1900 BC. It is three kilometres from Boğazkale to the important Yazilikaya. See also Alacahöyük and the later Karatepe.

For an excellent collection of Hittite pictures from several sources - with clickable map - see Monuments of the Hittites by Tayfun Bilgin who kindly informed me on proper captions for some of my pictures also.

BOĞAZKALE

Boğazkale Köyü’nde (Boğazköy de deniyor), Hitit şehri Hattuşa bulunuyor. 1911 ve 1912’de yapılan kazılarda, kraliyet arşivi olan 2500 kil tablet bulundu. Tabletler üzerinde yapılan çalışmalar sonucunda Hititçe’nin bir Hint-Avrupa dili olduğu anlaşıldı. Önemli buluntuların çoğu şu an Ankara Anadolu Medeniyetleri Müzesi ’nde, kil tabletler de Berlin’deki bir müzede sergileniyor. Çok büyük savunma –ya da ayin- duvarları ve tapınak I, tapınak II, vs diye adlandırılan yerlerin dış hatlarını görebilirsiniz. MÖ 1900’lerdeki Hitit saldırılarından önce bile burada insanlar yaşıyordu. Boğazkale’nin önemli bir yer olan Yazılıkaya ile arasındaki uzaklık üç kilometre. Alacahöyük galerisini de görebilirsiniz.
