While abroad in Turkey on a research trip, I was lucky enough to visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, which houses a huge collection of Hittite tablets.
I was struck by just how detailed and beautiful these artefacts were. So much so that I decided to try my hand at a very basic piece of Hittite writing. In this vid I give a light intro to the writing and language of their day, then get stuck into some home-made scripting that you can try as well
Anyone out there an experienced cuneiform a-scripter? I'd be interested to hear or see of the technique used.
Also, if you enjoyed this vid, have a look at my website http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk for further Hittite articles and news.
