With gratitude’s to Herodotus, Homer, Strabon and Hittite inscriptions
together with all the ancient historians and geographers,
for the shed they have lighted on Anatolia’s long history..
This beautiful land is the Asiatic portion of contemporary Turkey, extending from the Bosporus and Aegean coast, eastward to the borders of the Soviet Union, Iran, and Iraq. The Greeks and Romans used to call western Anatolia “Asia.” Later the name “Asia Minor,” or “Little Asia,” was used to distinguish Anatolia from the greater Asian continent. The land that makes up most of modern-day Turkey, has been home to the earth’s oldest known settled civilizations since prehistoric times and is characterized by remarkable continuity. The region lies alongside Mesopotamia, is considered the “cradle of civilization.”
