In this episode, students explore Hattusha, Turkey and Persepolis, Iran. Excavations at the archaeological site of Hattusha brought to light the cuneiform character inscriptions of the Hittite Empire. The Hittite tribe built a strong empire and used horses, chariots, and metal weapons to establish their superiority. Royal families held ceremonies and celebrations in the magnificent palaces found in Persepolis. Situated to the northeast of the modern city Shiraz in southwest Iran, Persepolis was the ancient capital of the Persian Empire. Part of the “World Heritage” series.
