The Secret of the Hittites; the discovery of an ancient empire by C. W Ceram( Book )

Overview: The Hittites, an ancient Indo-European people who appeared in Anatolia at the beginning of the second millennium BC, had become one of the dominant powers of the Middle East by 1340 BC. Early kings of the Hittite Old Kingdom had extended Hittite control over much of northern Syria eventually raiding down the Euphrates to Babylon. The struggle with Egypt under Ramses II for control of Syria led to one of the greatest battles of the ancient world at Kadesh in 1299 BC. The fall of the Hittite Empire in 1193 BC was sudden - perhaps because of large scale migration - and historical records were scarce. But then the discovery of Hittite cuneiform tablets at their ancient capital of Hattusa (now Bogazko, Turkey) in the 1940's yielded fascinating information about the people, their political organization, social structure, economy and religion. C.W. Ceram, author of Gods, Graves and Scholars, tells the dramatic story of the riddle of the scripts, the secret of their power and the mystery of their survival. In so doing he unlocks the secrets of this ancient empire

Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte; Roman der Archäologie by C. W Ceram( Book )

191 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Weltbestseller 'Götter, Gräber und Gelehrte' (Gesamtauflage: über 5 Millionen Exemplare) gilt als Wegbereiter des modernen Sachbuchs in Deutschland. C.W. Ceram erzählt darin die Geschichte der Archäologie als packenden, hochinformativen Tatsachenroman. Von Europa über den Vorderen Orient bis in die Neue Welt folgt er den Spuren der großen Forscher und Abenteurer. Der Leser scheint hautnah dabei zu sein, wenn Schliemann Troja entdeckt, Carter die legendäre Grabkammer des Tutanchamun öffnet, Koldewey Babylon freilegt, Thompson nach dem Schmuck der Maya taucht oder Champollion die Hieroglyphen entschlüsselt - und untergegangene Welten ihre Geheimnisse preisgeben. Cerams Klassiker ist ein bis heute unerreichtes Meisterwerk: die brillante Einführung in Methoden und Ergebnisse einer Wissenschaft. Für die Neuausgabe hat der bekannte Archäologe Michael Siebler das Buch durchgehend, aber behutsam aktualisiert. Die Bebilderung wurde vollkommen neu gestaltet und durch zahlreiche Zeichnungen von Hannelore Marek ergänzt

V úvodu knihy o dějinách archeologie, představující 326 obrázků provázených poutavým textem, pojatým nikoliv jen jako legenda k obrázkům, nýbrž jako živě napsané zprávy či krátké reportáže, tvořící s obrázky rovnocenný celek, knihy vytvořené ze sbírek velkého počtu uměleckohistorických institucí a za pomoci řady odborníků, autor říká: "Tato kniha je záměrně rozvržena stejně jako Bohové, hroby a učenci. Jde mi o sledování historické a kulturníkontinuity po linii vedoucí od Sumerů přes Babylónii, Asýrii, Krétu, Řecko a Řím až k dnešku ... Tato kniha - stejně jako Bohové, hroby a učenci ... - nemá nic společného s, populárně vědeckou literaturou. Nejsem vědec, alespisovatel, který se při líčení vývoje jedné vědy řídí literární zásadou: vidět skutečnost temperamentem ..."
