PHD abstract:
In my Phd thesis I am investigating Mycenean and Hittite fortifications in terms of their
interrelations and intersections. In Anatolia and Greece of the Late Bronze Age, or the Late
Helladic Period (1600-1050 BCE), fortifications were common architectural features of major
cities. They surrounded and hence protected the city, signified power and embodied
construction styles and traditions of the time period. Demonstrating a lively cultural exchange
after Mycenaean and Hittite civilizations first established contact with each other in the 15th
century BCE in Western Anatolia, Mycenaean and Hittite fortifications seem to have strongly
influenced each other.
