Kültepe at the Crossroads between Disciplines

Fikri Kulakoğlu, Cécile Michel (eds) 

Kültepe International Meetings 5, SUBARTU LI
Brepols, 2024, 312 p.


This fifth volume of a collection devoted to the interdisciplinary meetings held one every two years at Kültepe, ancient Kaneš, brings together eighteen contributions dedicated to the archaeology and history of this Central Anatolian site and its surroundings. Each chapter within the volume presents the results of current research into Kültepe, thus continuing the holistic approach first demonstrated in earlier volumes of the Kültepe International Meetings sub-series of revitalizing one of the most important cultural centres of early Anatolia and of emphasising its importance as a pilot site for interdisciplinary studies. Drawing on Kültepe’s unique textual and archaeological data, the studies gathered here are organized into four key thematic sections devoted respectively to politics, law and religion; women, family and correspondence; human and animal skeletons; and to the most recent archaeological excavations in Kültepe covering a period from the Chalcolithic to Hellenistic times.
