Talk by Stuart Piggott , F.B.A.
Professor of Prehistoric Archaeology in the University of Edinburgh
Stuart Piggott has recently returned from central Turkey, where he studied thirteen little-known prehistoric ' royal tombs ' lying to the north-east of Ankara. He considers their magnificent contents of finely worked weapons, jewellery, and bronze animals from them and from the type of the tombs he draws some inferences about the general picture of events in western Asia around 2000 B.C.
