Greater Anatolia and the Indo-Hittite Language Family:
Papers presented at a Colloquium hosted
by the University of Richmond, March 18-19, 2000
Monograph No. 38 — Edited by Robert Drews

The papers in this monograph are the product of a symposium organized to investigate the validity of, and interrelationship between several theories. Prominent amongst these were the Indo-Hittite theory that Proto-Indo-European arose amongst the languages of the Greater Anatolian landmass lying between the Aegean and the Caspian, the claim by Gamkrelidze and Ivanov that proto-Indo-European was spoken in the valleys of the middle Kura and Arexas just west of the Caspian, and the argument by Colin Renfrew that Proto-Indo-European had originated amongst early cultivators in southern Anatolia and had been carried into Europe along with knowledge of farming.
