Oh, the Hittites have never been forgotten, misplaced maybe, but never forgotten!

See pages 36 - 38 of Asterix and the Black Gold for evidence of that!

Haha - haven't read that since I was a kid. Will have to revisit :)

Seriously though, while the neo-Hittites of the biblical era were never forgotten, the empire-era Hittites (roughly 1650-1200 BC) apparently fell out of living memory/knowledge. I've written another article about it here: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/alostempire
