      • Narrator: The name Hittites has come down to us from the oldest stories in the Bible where they appear as a ferocious tribe from the fringes of the Holy Land. Almost nothing more was known about them until the 19th century when explorers traveling the empty expanse of central Turkey found a lost city. What they discovered astonished the archaeological world. Here was Hattusha, the capital of a forgotten empire, a city whose construction was far ahead of its time. It was perched on high cliffs and surrounded by once impregnable walls. They found evidence of a gigantic pyramid, rivaling the works of the ancient Egyptians, a network of secret subterranean tunnels and a sprawling temple complex at the heart of the city, dedicated to long forgotten gods. And overlooking it all was a spectacular royal citadel, once home to a dynasty of warrior kings. But why did such an advanced and mighty empire suddenly vanish from history? Now, our investigators go in search of the answer, they want to bring the incredible city of Hattusha back to life and uncover the secrets of the Hittites.
