Bronze Age Cities : The Aegean and Asia Minor


Çatalhöyük, is the beginning of all these. Çatalhöyük connects Europe, Asia and The Mediterranean Sea. It has overstates tombs that inside, and the aspect of development was inevitable, as technology, which is wooden structures. With that, Indo-European people started to communicate with Asia Minor with people that is called as ‘Hittitets’. Hattutas is their capital that has streets that is organized, landmark structures and the sewerage channels. Their opponents was Egypt that is located in southwest and from southwest, Asyrians.


As I mentioned Hattusas is the capital of Hittites. As first impression, they had magnificent walls that is composed of mud-bricks. Wall was brilliant as defending front of enemies as followed the outlines of the city so it naturally supplies the natural defense. Also, the dwelling areas were complicated because of irregularity and neighboring. So the irregularity of these design elements results with the complicatory.

The Architecture of Ancient Egypt

Architecture depends on how the qualities disappear and reappear as in its axis. The used line that is in Egyptian sequences, mostly lies down through the flat land, so that causes the forwarding of bounding of western Thebes. Again, the comparison of the aspect of complexity with the Zoser’s independent layout; Giza pyramids was aligned on an axis. The benefits of Nile is endless. Transportation with boats at ease all the time if you want to go north or south, not differs. The mortuary was nearby to the river so the dead body can be brought at ease, again. The sun-god, Harmakhis, had a full of commitment as we can clearly observe from Sphinx. Sphinx was rectangular and has related with the hour-of-day concept and reflection of sun’s daily route axis the two (east and west) axes; these two are a great way of impression to be explained, the technology of Egyptians and the cooperation of these two aspects of art together, architecture and the astronomy. With this temple, the transformation of the body with gateway. Gateway’s walls has a lot of paintings on itself. These paintings were reflecting a questionable way of thinking, a sceptical way of thinking that includes the real construction of the pharaoh’s tomb.
