Episode 63 – Hittite 7 Village People

Daily life for the average Anatolian living under the Hittites was not all that terrible, and though much of it is poorly documented, there are still quite a bit we can say about how it may have looked to be an inhabitant of one of the many villages that dotted the valleys of Anatolia. These villages were often quite well organized, even if the houses themselves were of questionable construction, and a fair life could have been lived here, at least as far as we can tell. This is part one of daily life in Anatolia, next week will focus more heavily on the economic and legal issues a villager would expect to navigate as he toiled for his daily bread.
