What does it mean to say a society has collapsed? Who is affected, and how do they respond to changing circumstances? In this lecture, these questions are addressed using new archaeological evidence from the collapse of the Hittite empire in ancient Turkey, part of a massive regional collapse that affected much of the Eastern Mediterranean at the end of the Late Bronze Age, ca. 1200 BCE.
