About this collection

The Hatice Gonnet-Bağana Hittite Collection under the Collection of Anatolian Civilizations was donated to Koç University by the archaeologist/hittitologist Hatice Gonnet-Bağana in 2013. The Hatice Gonnet-Bağana Hittite Collection offers a wide range of sources on the subject of religious, cultural, social, and mythological aspects, as well as linguistic development of civilizations spreading throughout Anatolia including Akkadians, Hattians, Hurrians, Hittites (Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, and New Kingdom, as well as Syro-Hittite era), Assyrians, Phrygians, Lycians, Urartians, and Troans since the 3rd millenium BC. Diversity of languages in both print and manuscript materials including French, Turkish, English, German, Italian, Hebrew, Japanese, and Arabic gives a rich perspective in the field of archaeology.

The Hatice Gonnet-Bağana Hittite Collection consists of the source material including images (photographs, negative films, and slides), manuscripts, maps, lecture notes, illustrations and drawings of hieroglyph inscriptions, personal correspondences and official letters, excavation reports, ephemera, posters, newspaper clippings, postcards, as well as published works (reprints, offprints, articles, and monographs). The collection can be divided into three main categories: 1) image collection (Hatice Gonnet-Bağana’s photographs, slides, and negatives); 2) source material collection (published works and Hatice Gonnet-Bağana’s manuscripts); and 3) Laroche Hittite texts collection (Hatice Gonnet-Bağana’s transliteration and translation of Hittite texts based on Emmanuel Laroche’s catalog).

The image collection documenting the archaeological sites and ancient monuments in Anatolia such as Sarıalan Beyköy (Afyon), Karkamış, Nişantaş, Hattusa, Midas, Yazılıkaya, Yumrutepe, Kapıkaya, as well as maps of archaeological sites is what makes this collection unique and it is one of the highlights of the Hatice Gonnet-Bağana Hittite Collection.
