    G. Torri,The “Haus am Hang” at Ḫattuša. A Late Hittite State Scriptorium and Its Tablet Collections, Studien zu den Bogazköy-Texten 67 (2022).

    Giulia Torri’s research focuses on a collection of Hittite texts discovered during the first excavations in Lower City of Ḫattuša when, in 1907, a palace, later named Haus am Hang (House on the Slope), was discovered. The research reconstructs the archaeological context and provides a new approach in outlining the cultural environment in which the Hittite texts were produced. The texts, classified according to their content as administrative texts, chancellery texts, and texts of the scribal tradition, are collected, studied, and compared with their duplicate versions from other locations, with the aim of showing how the Hittite scribes composed and preserved them.
