  1. Love these history videos but they are hard to follow because they are not part of an official Khan playlist, neither from this channel or the official Khan history channel. Could you make a playlist with these videos chronologically?

  2. part 5 Quote The thesis presented and evidenced in this volume is that the so-called Hittite Empire, dubbed the Forgotten Empire because it was supposedly discovered less than one hundred years ago, is nothing but the kingdom of the Chaldeans; further, that the pictographic script found on monuments from the western shores of Asia Minor to Babylon, but mainly in central and eastern Anatolia and northern Syria, is most probably the Chaldean script. The "Hittite" emperors are alter egos of the great kings of the Chaldean Dynasty of Babylon. Thus the "Hittite Empire" in its most exalted period, the placement of which in the fourteenth and thirteenth centuries before the present era has caused innumerable difficulties and led to much consternation among archaeologists, vanishes after having "lived" in books and articles for more than a century."[http://www.velikovsky.info/Ramses_II_and_His_Time`

    As I said the Indo-Aryan Lydians and Medes were same time as the Chaldeans

    Quote `(Hittites This empire reached its height during the mid-14th century BC under Suppiluliuma I, when it encompassed an area that included most of Asia Minor as well as parts of the ((((northern Levant and Upper Mesopotamia)))). After c. 1180 BC, the empire came to an end during the Bronze Age collapse, splintering into several independent "Neo-Hittite" city-states, some of which survived until the 8th century BC. ((((who are the Neo-Hittites? it is the Lydians Quote Lydia arose as a Neo-Hittite kingdom following the collapse of the Hittite Empire in the twelfth century BC. According to Greek sources, the original name of the Lydian kingdom was ((Maionia. `))

  4. the hittites are the kurds now kurdistan then later turkey took over the power then Iran Iraq and took over the kurdish lands so later they have no proof of nothing the hittites are the kurds now do your research

  5. After Adad Nirari I annexed Mitanni Mursili III wrote him a tablet stating a hilarious reply
    "So you’ve become a “Great King,” have you? But why do you still continue to speak about “brotherhood” and about coming to Mt. Ammana?… For what reason should I call you “brother”?…Do those who are not on familiar terms with each other call each other “brother”? Why then should I call you “brother”? Were you and I born of the same mother? As my grandfather and my father did not call the King of Assyria “brother,” you should not keep writing to me (about) “coming” and “Great King-ship.” It displeases me."

  6. Peace is a long road, but I'm sure we're continuing to make progress on it. How cool to think of a time when this kind of agreement was a new idea! Obviously, it's not easy to live in peace, but formally agreeing to want to seems like an important step.

  7. BCE, ie, Before Common Era. Mmm… And, I wonder, what was "common"? Oh, gosh, it is (still) the birth of Jesus Christ! You know, just as in BC, Before Christ? So, why in the world change something to mean the exact same thing? Do you seriously think there is a need to make such infantile "change"? Are you going to do as in Nineteen Eighty Four and remove BC and AD from all books? This kind of imbecile enfantillage makes me doubt the seriousness of the so-called scholars who make these decisions. Grow up, children!

  8. Well the the word Europe is a non indo European word….aren't gypsies indo european? Just wondering

  10. There are layers of influence….Armenian. according to historians and the language tree, we see Armenian is older then Greeks Persians Sumerians and we can find Armenian words and meaning in languages around the world…Here is what Prof Ellis has to say…according to Ellis
    (1861)  through language analysis we observe that under the names of
    Phrygians, Thracians, Pelasgians and Etruscans spread westward from Armenia to
    Italy and Elis claimed that the closest affinities of the Aryan element are the
    Armenians ..other historians that agree are..Hellenthal, Busgy, Brand, Wilson,
    Myers and Falush…

  11. From the book Language as a fingerprint Setyan..mentioned..H.V. Hilprecht(1859-1925) a Clark research
    professor of Assyriology and scientific director Babylonian expedition at the
    University of Penn. argue that the Hittite tongue is Armenian and the Hittites
    themselves were of Armenian stock…
    One of the measurements is the known laws of Armenian
    phonetics and according to Professor Hilprecht ,Hittite writing was invented by
    the forefathers of the modern Armenians..
    Professor Jensen also says.  ‘For almost everything
    that is known in the Hittite language is Old Armenian in form..
    Historian Sayce (1845-1933) also consider Hittite and
    Armenian to be one and the same’.
